So join us and delegates from other pharma companies from across Europe for a two-day intensive workout-programme to get ready for the challenges of 2015, the year the EU’s Safety Features Delegated Act will be issued, when the first provisions of the US DSCSA come into force and when initial provisions in markets such as South Korea, Saudi Arabia and Brazil will come due.
And if you’re still in doubt whether you should make this a priority, check out some recent articles in industry publications on the subject, such as Christoph analysis of the industry readiness in Pharmaceutical Field magazine, Ian’s article on the possible Pharmaceutical Mass Extinction Event or the insights into the thinking that is shaping the awaited EU Delegated Act on Safety Features, that was published in Securing Industry in August 2014 and the expected impact of the EU-FMD Safety Features Delegated Act in the EIPG Journal.
Remember: Getting fit for Serialisation now is not just crucial to your company survival over the next few years, but getting your programme off to a good start now, with help from some of the world’s leading experts, may well help you achieve two other of the top New Year’s resolutions, to be less stressed at work and, through the implementation of a well-controlled and predictable programme, even achieve the work-life balance so that you can spend some time with family and loved ones!
