Track and Trace Benefits Pharma Packaging Printers

Christian Puech at Packart discusses how a new tracking and tracing system is helping companies with a need for high-security, high-technology printing to maximise their anti-counterfeiting operations, and ensure safe tracking throughout the pharmaceutical supply chain

Maintaining digital document security through file authentication, file integrity and traceability is a significant challenge for those involved in the pharmaceutical print and packaging sector. Who the owner is, whether it is the original file, genuine, and in the right place are all questions to be considered. Through digital marking, security features can now be painlessly transferred to the ‘analogue’ world using a range of marking and printing technologies. At the same time, the information contained within these markings can remain invisible to the human eye.

There are two key areas that require end-to-end solutions in the pharmaceutical packaging sector:

  • Authentication, which entails fighting counterfeiting by ensuring the clear validation of products, containers, packaging and product components
  • Tracking and tracing, which manages sales channels by using secure unit traceability by batch, or unique identification by article, in order to trace products anywhere, or at any time, within the supply chain

Key to Outsourcing Method Development and Validation: A Pragmatic Approach

RSSL

In an industry that is seeing an increasing level of work being outsourced, the Contract Research Organisation (CRO) of choice needs to have proven experience in both the pragmatism and flexibility of the method developer’s mind set and a regulatory background in validation. As companies are focussing on achieving ever shorter times of drug to market, it is vital that a tailored, pragmatic approach is adopted when engaging in both method development and validation activities for an Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) or drug product (DP). Although methods still require a high degree of robustness, the overall strategy should encompass a full evaluation of the regulatory requirements applicable to the particular phase of the drug life-cycle; this is pivotal in Key to Outsourcing Method Development and Validation A Pragmatic Approach order to ensure a successful regulatory submission, where the applicant must demonstrate suitable validation of all methods used to support the filing.
