BIO submitted comments on the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Draft Guidance for Industry, Product Identifiers Under the Drug Supply Chain Security Act Questions and Answers.
BIO member companies are committed to ensuring the U.S. drug supply chain is secure, patients are receiving authentic products, and legitimate medications continue to move through the supply chain without unnecessary delays.

BIO provides suggestions on how to make the guidance more clear and effective, regarding the order and format of product identifier requirements, expiration date formatting, use of the GTIN and NDC, and the timely release of guidance documents.
