DSCSA Update – What Do Regulators and Pharmacies Really Need to Know?
Home Study Webinar
Free Activity – available through March 28, 2026.
On August 28, 2023, FDA announced that it would delay enforcement of certain provisions of DSCSA until November 27, 2024. The FDA guidance offers more details.
Although November 2023 appears to be off in the distant future, there is much for the pharmacy community to do to prepare for the implementation of the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA), specifically the requirements for product tracing for regulators and dispensers (aka pharmacies). Attendees will be updated on the NABP DSCSA pilot project and what we have learned as to what needs to be accomplished in the time remaining before implementation. A moderated panel will then discuss what regulators and pharmacies really need to know about the DSCSA and how to best prepare for the future.
