The Center of Excellence is a dedicated group of solution providers that will work with the industry to accelerate the rollout of serialized data in advance of the November 27, 2023, DSCSA deadline.
Reno, Nevada, Dec. 7, 2021 (EINPRESSWIRE). Antares Vision Group, through rfxcel, today announced an EPCIS Center of Excellence (COE) to help pharmaceutical stakeholders prepare for upcoming serialization requirements in the U.S. Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA). rfxcel first introduced the COE at a Healthcare Distribution Alliance (HDA) Quarterly Update on September 27.
Antares Vision Group is a global leader in creating end-to-end data connection ecosystems with solutions for quality, traceability, and data management for supply chains and digital factories. rfxcel is a global leader in digital supply chain traceability solutions and regulatory compliance.
DSCSA regulations will take effect on November 27, 2023, that require every supply chain partner to share unit-level product data electronically in a secure, interoperable manner.

At present, EPCIS — Electronic Product Code Information Services — is the most widely recognized international standard that will allow stakeholders to meet these requirements for transaction data connections.
rfxcel will coordinate with other recognized solution providers to develop processes to accelerate the rollout of EPCIS and ensure that serialized data is exchanged properly. rfxcel CEO Glenn Abood underlined that the COE is a group effort focused on the benefit all pharmaceutical supply chain participants.
“The EPCIS COE is an industry-wide undertaking that relies on the knowledge and expertise of every member,” Abood said. “The serialization deadline is just two years away, and rfxcel is excited to announce the COE and to be working with our peers to ensure the success of the DSCSA by meeting the requirements for accurate, high-quality data.”
