Union Ministry's Latest Notification Mandate Pharmaceutical Serialization Under Drug Rules, 1945

(in rule 96, after sub-rule (4))

As per the sub-rule (5), every API (Bulk Drug) imported/manufactured in India must bear a QR code on its label at each level of packaging. The QR code will store multiple set of data to facilitate smooth tracking. Pharma Manufacturers are expected to comply with the mandate by January 2023 leaving only few months to plan and execute.

It is just a matter of weeks with zero flaws and faster compliance with ongoing regulations. Moreover, the solution is flexible enough to adapt to changing regulations.
To address the question correctly, we would like you to share a few pointers such as Production Volume, Packaging Material, and Level of Packaging, among other pieces of information to understand the Capital Expenditure required to integrate our solution with your existing systems. Moreover, it is noteworthy to understand that our solution is designed to facilitate faster implementation with the lowest one-time Capital Expenditure.
No, you do not require separate infrastructure. We are capable of integrating serialization with the existing production line. Either industrial printers are integrated with the production line or manual labels are pasted on the product/packaging which is later activated.
Manufacturers can access serialization or related information via dashboard view (Web widget or mobile app) at any time. He just needs to log in with credentials that are restricted to only authorized personnel.
Yes, we offer easy and pocket-friendly integration with existing ERPs, CMOs, and 3PLs.
