United Arab Emirates Track & Trace Requirements
In June 2021, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Ministry of Health and Prevention (MOHAP) established the “Tatmeen” platform for pharmaceutical products traceability in Ministerial Decree No. 73. MOHAP’s partners include the Dubai Health Authority (DHA), Department of Health (Abu Dhabi), and EVOTEQ, a “digital transformation catalyst” based in the UAE, and GS1 UAE.
About UAE Track and Trace Requirements
Tatmeen means “assurance” in Arabic. All conventional medicines sold, distributed, or stored in the UAE are regulated and must be serialized. Aggregation is required. Secondary packaging must contain four data points in a GS1 DataMatrix code and in human-readable form:
- Global Trade Item Number (GTIN)
- Randomized serial number (up to 20 characters)
- Expiry date (in YYMMDD format)
- Batch or lot number
However, some products do not need to be serialized:
- Free samples
- Products imported for personal use only
- Medical devices and supplies
- General sales list (GSL) products
The last major UAE Tatmeen deadline was December 13, 2022: All supply chain actors in the UAE must obtain a Global Location Number (GLN) from GS1 UAE to identify their organization, where it’s located, and other required information. Relevant stakeholders must also begin reporting serial numbers to Tatmeen and begin aggregation with GS1-128 barcodes and serial shipping container codes.
