November 19, 2018

BIO submitted comments on the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Draft Guidance for Industry, Product Identifiers Under the Drug Supply Chain Security Act Questions and Answers.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. The Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) will improve the security of the U.S. pharmaceutical supply chain only with collaboration among all supply-chain stakeholders.

In the comments, BIO says this Q&A document will help sponsors and stakeholders better understand the use of product identifiers. 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.
