The FDA has released draft guidance on “Standards for Securing the Drug Supply Chain – Standardized Numerical Identification for Prescription Drug Packages,” which recommends standards industry should use for the identification of individual packages containing prescription drugs under the FDAAA. The standards are designed to facilitate adoption of a uniform electronic track and trace system for prescription drugs to further improve their safety and security. The FDA is soliciting comments on certain aspects of the guidance, as detailed in a January 16, 2009 notice. Comments will be accepted until April 16, 2009.
