October 21, 2019. Vinicius Bagnarolli, rfxcel’s director of operations for Latin America, will speak about serialization best practices, preparing for Brazil’s National Medicine Control System (SNCM), and Supply Chain 4.0 at the Enterprise Business Development and Information (ebdi) Pharma Logistics & Cold Chain 2019 Conference October 23-24 in Sao Paulo.
rfxcel, the leader in track and trace solutions for the pharmaceutical industry, has prioritized helping Brazilian companies prepare for SNCM, a medicine traceability system designed to establish mechanisms and procedures for tracking and tracing drugs in Brazil. The Brazilian Health Regulatory Agency (ANVISA) has been working on the regulations since 2009; they are scheduled to take effect in May 2022.
The conference, titled “Innovation and Regulation Together for the Growth of the Pharmaceutical Ecosystem,” will be held at Sau Paulo’s Villa Bisutti Casa do Ator hotel. It will feature panel discussions, lectures, plenary sessions, and networking events. Over two days, attendees will learn about regulatory affairs, how and where to invest in supply chain logistics technology, process management and integration, and experts’ predictions for Brazil’s supply chain.
Bagnarolli will speak on Day 1, stressing the importance of following supply chain best practices to prepare for SNCM, which requires unit-level serialization, tracking/tracing and monitoring products environmental conditions, and submitting detailed transaction data to the government. He will also review the processes, technologies, and machinery that will help companies be ready for the future, including Supply Chain 4.0 and blockchain. Discussing the benefits of track and trace solutions, he will highlight rfxcel’s industry-leading technology, including our signature rfxcel Traceability Solution (rTS) platform and rfxcel Integrated Monitoring (rIM), which can track more than a dozen environmental factors in real time.
“I’m happy to have the opportunity to speak directly to the industry,” Bagnarolli said. “SNCM is 30 months away; this may seem like a long time, but companies have to act now to be ready to comply. I want people to know the value track and trace technology brings to the supply chain, and what other steps they can take to add value to their operations. The changes may seem complex, but implementing best practices now will ensure you’re ready for the future — for SNCM, Supply Chain 4.0, blockchain, artificial intelligence, and beyond — and can bring immediate value to your bottom line.”
Bagnarolli, who grew up in Porto Alegre, added, “I really want to emphasize that Brazil must embrace Supply Chain 4.0 now. rfxcel is ready to provide guidance on how to best approach the changes that are coming. The unique software capabilities we have developed over the past 15 years have helped companies around the world meet stringent compliance requirements, safeguard their supply chains, and expand their markets. I’m looking forward to talking about best practices, how to prepare for SNCM, and the future of our supply chain.”
