Is Your Store Brand Ready for a
Digital World?
 
Before e-commerce and omni-channel retail, store brands sold by individual retailers were limited to the four walls of their own stores. These products were labeled with internal proprietary identifiers whose sole purpose was to support price lookups.

Today’s consumers are digital consumers, and they are shopping and buying when, where, and how they want. With the advent of the internet, closed loop numbering systems are no longer adequate to meet the search and discovery needs of consumers. Since the numbers are not unique, they create two distinct types of problems—too little or too much information.

-----------------------------------------------
With serialization deadlines fast approaching, a staggering amount of pharmaceutical manufacturers and contract packagers are not fully prepared to meet the stringent requirements for compliance. A number of reports have been commissioned to identify the extent of this issue, with the consensus being reached that some 30 to 40 percent of European pharma companies are not compliant with the Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD) and some 50 to 60 percent of US companies not compliant with the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA).

New eGuide: Manage Regulatory Labeling with Confidence
-----------------------------------------------
Article courtesy of:

-----------------------------------------------
Managing regulatory compliance has always been a challenge for organizations, particularly those in the Chemical, Medical Device, Pharmaceutical and Food & Beverage industries. The stakes are even higher today as companies must balance adherence to strict—often exhaustive, always changing—policies and procedures with the desire to embrace digital transformation and accelerate business to keep up with growing global competition.

Border Procedure Management

Every day, governments protect citizens from unsafe consumer products coming across the border. Simultaneously, changing economic realities have made supply chain efficiency more vital than ever. This means governments must make well-informed decisions about product safety, without sacrificing efficiencies in cross-border product movement.

GS1 standards facilitate these decisions.

Our standards make it easier for governments and business to share information and work together, creating more secure and efficient supply chains.
