As I mentioned in my HDMA wrap-up post, most attendees indicated that they are well on their way to serialization at the packaging line, and in turn, the start of compliance with the 2015 Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) mandates.

Last week I attended the HDMA traceability conference in Arlington, VA. There were a couple of interesting takeaways from the event. The first thing I noticed was the attendance; it was easily a record turnout with over 300 people attending the event. I also learned that most companies have moved past the first phase of the DSCSA (TI, TH and TS transmission) and are now starting to think to the next steps of serialization and compliance with the 2017 mandates. We took a survey of attendees to see exactly where they are in the process. See the results here.
