The globalization of the supply chain of pharmaceutical products leads to a steady increase in the complexity of the process, when a product can pass through several intermediaries before it can reach a patient. Such an environment implies the probability of penetration into the supply chain of counterfeit, falsified, substandard or improperly manufactured medicines, as forgers constantly improve the process of manufacturing counterfeit products that look identical to the original; most counterfeit drugs have little or no therapeutic value, and can cause serious health problems, since active substances in counterfeits are often absent, their dosage is reduced, their content is distorted or extended beyond the expiry date.

To minimize the risks associated with such problems, many state regulatory and control bodies have established specific rules aimed at ensuring the authenticity of pharmaceutical products and, in most cases, tracking drug products throughout the chain of sales. In general, these rules provide for the duty of the owner of the registration certificate to introduce a set of computer systems for the registration, authentication, preservation and exchange of reliable reporting on commercial products before it is released to the market.

“The landscape in the sphere of regulation is changing – Francesco Amorosi, Business Development VP, tells – and all companies involved in the production of drugs and medical products must adapt to these changes.

For PQE, as a provider of global solutions, is possible to support these companies in their efforts to participate in this internationalization process. I believe that this trend will be positive for us. For the same reason, we have opened many branches around the world, including in Russia, this year.”
