Excellis Europe formed a partnership with FactoryTalk, experts in compliance services and technology solutions, to share serialization best practice across Indonesia.
The Indonesia Regulator BPOM began the Asean region’s journey to serialization compliance through draft regulation and a pilot project. This pilot project involved a small number of publicly and privately owned pharmaceutical companies.
This pilot project has now ended and it is anticipated that the results of the project will lead to a clarification of the draft requirements and will lead to companies needing to start implementing serialization in 2019.
The growing awareness of serialization within the Asean region has seen pharma companies search for the first steps to get started. FactoryTalk found that their customers were asking for expert traceability advice as well as consultancy but were struggling to know the right questions to ask and what the right answers were.
As a result of this interest, FactoryTalk approached Excellis Europe to form a partnership. This partnership has seen Ian Haynes, our Senior Director, visit Indonesia to share serialization best practice established through our work helping European pharma achieve EU-FMD compliance.
Ian spoke at an ISPE event in Jakarta as well as visiting companies across the region to help them understand the right questions to implement the right serialization solution.
Over 100 delegates from all companies within the pharma supply chain attended the event to understand more about implementing traceability. It was an opportunity to understand how serialization helps in the fight against counterfeit medicines and patient safety.
For Excellis Europe the next step will see Ian returning to Indonesia in April to present at the Indonesia Pharmacists Association.
