Pharmaceutical Supply Chain And Logistics Directors Gather In October To Discuss Security And Regulatory Updates At LogiPharma 2010

August 19, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Boston, MA LogiPharma 2010, the most comprehensive pharmaceutical supply chain event puts priority in security and regulatory compliance, bringing the FDA, TSA, and GS1US to talk about how pharmaceutical companies can improve product protection and e-pedigree readiness. Steve Kendall, PREDICT Project Director for the FDA will be sharing how PREDICT can improve the importing process and will outline PREDICT pilot programs and timelines for the Pharma space. Doug Brittin, Air Cargo Manager for the TSA joins LogiPharma to provide updates on the Air Cargo Screening Requirements and how pharmaceutical companies must be in compliance to avoid compromising sensitive pharmaceutical products and avoid potential bottlenecks at airports. Robert Celeste, Director of International Projects, Business Plans and Strategies for GS1 US also joins LogiPharma to share how pharmaceutical companies can prepare for e-Pedigree 2015 and help companies plan for implementing serialization into their supply chain.

Product protection and security are key challenges for the supply chain and logistics directors. Over the last year, the industry has experienced an unprecedented rise in cargo theft and counterfeiting, not to mention increased product vulnerability due to inefficient distribution and importation practices. Losses add up to the millions each month, but more importantly, this problem puts the consumer in real danger without the assurance that the medications they are taking are safe and effective. Improving supply chain security, drug authentication, and improved collaboration within the industry are extremely critical.

Listen now to our interview with David Ulrich, QA Director, GPO, SQI of Abbott Laboratories on quality assurance with temperature controlled distribution. David will speak at LogiPharma, which will take place this year on October 4-5 at the Hyatt Regency in Boston.

Other speakers joining David include: Ronald Bohl, Director, Supply Chain, Eli Lilly; William McLaury, Executive Director, North American Pharmaceutical Supply Chain, Novartis; Bill Connell, SVP Global Supply & Operations, Iroko Pharmaceuticals; Jeff Simmons, Manager External Manufacturing, Daiichi Sankyo; and many more.
