Track & Trace: OCS offers a fully integrated and secure end-to-end solution

08/21/2014

OCS Checkweighers and IT systems integrator Arvato Systems enjoy a close cooperation in the area of pharmaceutical solutions. In the drive to implement the serialization requirements as provided in the EU Falsified Medicines Directive 2011/62/EU, working together both companies have succeeded in developing a system solution without equal in the marketplace.

Continuous and secure end-to end Track & Trace system

The continuously increasing number of counterfeit medicines should be sustainably halted by the end-to-end verification process mandated for 2018. On that date, drug manufacturers will be required to assign individual serial numbers to their products and to print them on the packaging boxes. To further ensure safety against falsifications, this data must be stored under the highest security requirements.

Volker Ditscher, Business Manager Track & Trace at OCS Checkweighers, is very pleased: "Thanks to our cooperation with Arvato Systems, today we are able to offer a safe and complete end-to end system that covers all levels of aggregation and can be easily integrated in the production processes of the pharmaceutical industry and, in doing so, comply with the national verification process."

OCS Checkweighers and Arvato Systems invited as guests to EU Parliament

OCS Checkweighers and Arvato Systems already impressed the trade visitors in May of this year with a presentation of their joint solution at an information event organized by SecurPharm in Frankfurt am Main. The two companies exhibited a continuous production and logistic process for the first time in public and fully convinced the viewing audience by verifying the packages produced at a real pharmacy checkout. "The live demonstration showed the continuity and safety of our fully integrated end-to-end solution and made quite a good impression on the trade visitors in attendance," said Volker Ditscher.

The success of the joint project clears the way for both companies to Brussels, and a visit to the EU Parliament. Arvato Systems und OCS Checkweighers have been invited to present their overall approach to the health delegates of all European countries on 22 September in the Belgian capital.
