The live webinar, hosted by industry experts Thierry Protas (Videojet) and Luc Vallancourt (Optel Vision), is the second and final webinar about data management requirements deriving from serialization regulations in Europe and the United States. 

 Firstly, the “Data On” piece will be discussed:

  1.  How is the data collected and transformed into a code (quick recap of previous webinar)
  2.  What pieces of information derive from the serialization process (which pieces of data need to be handled)
  3.  How does the printer transmit the data-out

Secondly the “Data Out” piece will be examined:

  1. What are the communication protocol requirements and what are the differences between Europe and USA
  2. How does the communication take place among Level 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 of a plant (Production plant, data base, production line)
  3. What happens with the data? Different options for how to handle data
  4.  Data repository requirements
  5.  Best practices to assure data integrity
  6.  Future differences in data management and communication requirements

Attend for the following benefits:

  • Overall understanding of data management requirements from DSCSA and FMD
  • Understand what happens with the data after code application 
  • Get helpful/practical tips on dealing with challenges deriving from implementation                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          

Challenges tackled: 

  • This webinar approaches the challenges in managing data which comes with new serialization and Track & Trace programs, from the point that data is printed/applied onto the pack until the point when data is saved/stored for future purposes.
