Product Security Regulations
Serialization, track-and-trace, and authentication requirements
Mounting regulations are driving the pharmaceutical, medical device, food and beverage, tobacco, and luxury goods industries to adopt new technologies to secure their supply chains. Next generation serialization, track-and-trace, and encryption technologies now help manufacturers exporting into regulated markets adapt their packaging to meet traceability requirements. Even in the absence of regulation, many manufacturers want to track their products through the supply chain in order to stop counterfeiting, minimize the production and distribution of unsafe or lower quality products, and reduce the magnitude of recalls.
Industries where regulation is driving product security adoption include:Tobacco:
Food and Beverage:
- US Food Safety Modernization Act
- EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR)
- FDA Unique Device Identification (UDI)
