Pharma Track and Trace Seminar

WIPOTEC-OCS and USS Pactech invite you to a strategy seminar on serialization and Track & Trace.

According to the South African Department of Health, coding of the secondary and tertiary packaging of pharmaceutical prescription drugs must be implemented by January 2019 and July 2020 accordingly. The serialization law will become effective only few years afterwards. To comply with the legal requirements before the deadlines, it is necessary to start planning batch coding and serialization projects already now. 

WIPOTEC-OCS and USS Pactech invite you to an informative implementation strategy seminar to gain more information from the leading industry experts in the field of drugs coding, serialization and Track & Trace. Here you will also have an opportunity to meet and network with representatives of leading South African pharma companies to learn more about the latest developments on the market and exchange experiences on batch coding and serialization projects. 

Why you should attend: 

  • To gain insights in the topic of batch coding, serialization and Track & Trace in the healthcare industry.
  • To start a dialog with colleagues from other pharmaceutical companies as well as with machine and software solution providers.
  • To learn about best practices and key success factors of pharmaceutical coding and serialization.
