Clear your calendar! "Rx Track and Trace Day" is Wednesday, Aug. 14 — the day drugmakers get up to speed on implementation of the emerging prescription drug track and trace system.

FDAnews has invited top regulators from California and the FDA, plus industry experts, to brief YOU on this new set of compliance requirements.

Plan on spending 5 fast-paced hours with the brightest stars in the drug regulatory firmament, and industry too:

  • Virginia Herold, California's point person on track and trace: Herold, chief of the California State Board of Pharmacy, will explain that state's groundbreaking e-pedigree program, including details of the Board's June 24 e-pedigree committee public meeting and what's in store for the coming September 26 meeting.
  • Industry track and trace guru Bill Fletcher: Conference Chair Fletcher, Managing Director, Pharma Logic Solutions, walks you through the 17 (18 and 19 pending!) company traceability program rollouts he has implemented at leading pharmaceutical companies, and imparts lessons learned.
  • Gabrielle Cosel, The PEW Charitable Trusts: brings you the latest from Capitol Hill, where she monitors track and trace in the House and Senate. Ms. Cosel, manager of Pew's Drug Safety Project, will preview what the final bill may contain and how Congress has set up the complex implementation schedule.
  • Track and trace expert Torben Vogt: Vogt covers the bits and bytes of setting up a track and trace system in your shop. From the simple (allocating and randomizing serial numbers) to the complex (developing global systems that can work in the U.S., U.K., China and other nations), Mr. Vogt is ready with tips, tricks and shortcuts that help you implement track and trace with the least effort and expense.

Get set for an intense daylong learning experience getting comfortable with this new drug distribution compliance area. Prepare to discover:

  • Exceptions and exemptions to the California requirements
  • Status of pending and future regulations to implement California's e-pedigree requirements
  • Federal regulatory frameworks for serialization and traceability
  • Updates to pending House and Senate bills, and probability of passage
  • Tracking registries (using EPCIS) versus e-pedigree document (using DPMS) for California compliance
  • Difficulties and challenges of implementing a serialization and track and trace program
  • How to minimize implementation cost of serialization and track and trace
  • Best practices to minimize risk in implementation on a global scale
  • And much more
