About this event

The purpose of this public meeting is to provide members of the pharmaceutical distribution supply chain and other interested stakeholders an opportunity to share their perspectives on DSCSA implementation. FDA requests that meeting participants come prepared to discuss the following topics:

• Stakeholder experiences with implementation and overall readiness regarding implementation of enhanced drug distribution security requirements that will go into effect on November 27, 2023

• DSCSA standards for the interoperable data exchange of product tracing information for enhanced product tracing and verification

• FDA’s mechanism to request product tracing information as well as verification during investigations of suspect or illegitimate product or in response to a recall to support enhanced drug distribution requirements under section 582(g) of the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act

• Steps the pharmaceutical distribution supply chain has taken to build capacity for package-level tracing, including the ability of the health care system to maintain patient access to medicines, scalability of DSCSA requirements, and best practices

• Technical capabilities and legal authorities, if any, needed to establish interoperable, electronic product tracing at the package level

• General impact that the DSCSA requirements could have not only on public health including, patient safety and access to prescription drugs, but also stakeholders, in terms of costs, benefits, and regulatory burden

If additional topics are added, FDA will post these topics on the public meeting webpage prior to the meeting.


FDA may limit registration once the meeting capacity is reached.
