What is the drug supply chain security act?

The Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) is a law in the United States that was passed in 2013. The DSCSA aims to create a more secure and transparent drug supply chain in the US by requiring drug manufacturers, repackagers, wholesale distributors, and dispensers to take certain steps to verify and track prescription drugs as they move through the supply chain.

One of the key features of the DSCSA is the requirement for drug companies to put unique identifiers on all prescription drugs sold in the US. These identifiers can be used to track individual packages of drugs as they move through the supply chain, from manufacture to sale.

The DSCSA is intended to help ensure that patients receive safe and effective medications, and to help prevent counterfeit, adulterated, and stolen drugs from entering the US drug supply.

The law also creates a framework for the eventual implementation of an electronic system to track and trace prescription drugs throughout the supply chain. This system is not yet operational, but it is expected to be up and running by 2023.

The DSCSA has had a major impact on the way that prescription drugs are manufactured, repackaged, distributed, and dispensed in the US.

Drug companies have had to make significant changes to their operations in order to comply with the new law. Many of these changes have been costly and time-consuming, but they are necessary to ensure a safe and secure drug supply chain in the US.
