Repackagers must serialize products by November 2018.

In order to comply with the DSCSA, pharmaceutical manufacturers, repackagers, and wholesale distributors will need to be able to:

  • Properly label prescription drug product packages and cases,
  • Trace prescription drugs through the supply chain,
  • Aggregate product transaction data and store it for 6 years, and
  • Respond quickly to product verification requests and recalls.
