Verizon Releases IoT Report

April 5, 2016 – Verizon just released the “State of the Market: Internet of Things 2016” report.  According to the report, the Internet of Things has gone mainstream.  The report summarizes “throughout 2016 and beyond, Verizon’s experts say that IoT will continue to be a revenue driver for businesses both large and small due to the confluence of five macrotrends.”   According to the report, one of those macrotrends is “changes in the regulatory landscape will continue to bring the right ecosystem partners together to help establish industry standards more quickly.”  The Verizon IoT report then goes on to summarize the following:

  • Consider the Drug Supply Chain Act, which gives drug manufacturers until late 2017 to implement systems to electronically transfer and store transaction histories for their prescription drugs including shipment information across their distribution and supply chain. The law is designed to thwart counterfeit drugs which cost the industry $75 billion annually according to the World Health Organization.”

FDA Updates DSCSA Guidance for Dispensers

June 30, 2015

Enforcement of Product Tracing Requirements Delayed until November 1, 2015

The FDA today released updated DSCSA guidance and is postponing enforcement of DSCSA product tracing requirements for dispensers until November 1, 2015. The new guidance addresses the readiness of dispensers in the pharmaceutical distribution supply chain to comply with the exchange and capture of product tracing information – Transaction Information (TI), Transaction History (TH), and Transaction Statements (TS).  The intent of the enforcement delay is to ensure dispensers have enough time to “utilize electronic systems to capture and maintain product tracing information”.
