WORLDWIDE According to the World Health Organization (WHO), ten percent of medicines worldwide are counterfeit, up to 30 percent in developing countries.
Counterfeit medicines pose a serious health risk. Counterfeit medicines are also about the safety and, in the worst case, the survival of patients.
Counterfeit medicines no longer only concern so-called lifestyle products but also cancer drugs, drugs for the treatment of cardiovascular complaints, antibiotics...
In order to increase security in the regular supply chain, the EU continues to impose additional EU requirements on security measures. Since February 2019, the packaging of prescription medicines has had to be provided with initial opening protection, e.g. a seal label.
The medicines will be checked for authenticity by a scan in the pharmacy when they are handed in. Before the medication is passed on to the patient, the pharmacist checks an identification code for each medication.
Medicines are given pack-specific serial numbers, which are stored in a protected database. If a package with an unknown or already scanned number is found, the system sounds an alarm.
THE SAFE SOLUTION:
TRANSPARENCY from production to the patient:
Identification of each folding box with a unique serial number
Aggregation of the individual folding boxes the next packaging unit (e.g. carton)
Aggregation of packaging units on the shipping unit (for example, pallet)
Global provision of serial number and aggregation data
The advantages are obvious:
An important step in the production of safe medicines
Improvement of quality management
Documentation of the supply chain from the manufacturer to the end consumer
Reduce product aging within the supply chain
Improving product data accuracy and preserving this data
New possibilities in CRM (customer relationship)
Improved product safety and increased customer confidence
Securing entrepreneurial earning power by avoiding product piracy
