The EU Falsified Medicines Directive will enter into force on February 9, 2019. Among other things, it stipulates that prescription drugs may only be marketed in a package with a serial number and tamper-evident closure. The serial numbers are stored in a central IT database. By scanning the packaging after production, the manufactured units are registered in the system. The serialized and thus clearly identifiable goods must be re-checked and validated at the point of sale (e.g. pharmacy) by scanning the data matrix printed on the packaging before they can be handed over to the end customer. However, it is not clear what must happen if the serialized goods are damaged, contaminated, sabotaged or stolen in transit from production via wholesale to the point of sale.

The central question is to what extent logistics service providers (together with their shippers) must also develop concepts here - in addition to GDP. How can security technology and surveillance prevent damage or theft? Which security technology is available - on the vehicle side, through IT & telematics (geofencing, alarm systems) etc. and must this technology be GDP-qualified? Worst Case: What happens to the damaged or stolen goods? Are there emergency plans and instructions for the freight forwarder? How do the communication channels work? Do authorities have to be involved? Who bears the liability risks? etc. These questions are to be clarified in a panel discussion in which representatives of the entire pharmaceutical logistics supply chain will participate.
