The pharmaceutical serialization
SAP Track and Trace is a system that allows tracking and control of the traceability of the pharmaceutical products. This system is applied on the end-to-end supply chain, production process and commercial distribution.
The 2011/62/EU European directive regulates specifically that, from February of 2019 will be mandatory for all the prescription medicines to incorporate security seals to allow verifications along the supply chain to avoid fraud of pharmaceutical products.
When the pharmacist, last step from the value chain, sells prescription medicines to a patient, the code that appears on the box will be sent to a central database to be reviewed and verified.
