Many will argue that the accountability of ensuring product safety and integrity lies with the manufacturer from production to the end point of the supply chain. After all, it is their name on the label. But if that is the case, then where does the responsibility lie once a product changes hands?

Supply chain partners must work in tandem to ensure product quality whether it is in their warehouse or downstream. Rebecca Gentile Senior Specialist, Quality, Vaccine and Biological Stability at Merck discusses with us;

  • Remaining within supported temperature ranges throughout the supply chain
  • Addressing temperature excursions that exceed the time supported in the stability budget, and who is responsible
  • Effective ways information can be shared with customers along the supply chain without sacrificing intellectual property. 

Also, Mr. Geoffrey Glauser, Senior Consultant Supply Chain HHS/ASPR/BARDA will be one of three experts heading this year's two part pre-conference master class at the Cold Chain GDP & Temperature Management Logistics Summit - Canada for the “Temperature Assurance Packaging (TAP) Certification Program.” Both courses will help offer participants a systematic approach to developing a foundational understanding of Temperature Assurance Packaging (TAP), and coach the participants through the entire life cycle of developing a (TAP). In this interview, we spoke to Geoffrey about:

  • Different TAP solutions as it might relate to the specific needs of a company
  • Fundamentals of temperature assurance packaging
  • Regulatory considerations when developing a temperature assurance package
