DGFT’s Track and Trace Requirements for Exported Pharma Products
This full-day technical workshop is designed to help pharma companies implement with the Directorate General of Foreign Trade’s (DGFT) track and trace requirements as mentioned in the Public Notice 13/2015-2020.
As per this Notice, in order to implement a traceability system to prevent counterfeits and authenticate products, the DGFT requires all exported pharmaceutical consignments from India to be marked and coded with GS1 barcodes at various packaging levels. The Notice also directs exporters to maintain and upload this coding information along with product hierarchy (parent-child relationships) to DGFT’s central portal ‘DAVA’ before the consignment is released for sale or distribution.
The full-day implementation workshop is divided into four sessions:
Session 1: Coding and Labelling Requirements
- Marking and labelling requirements
- Hierarchy of product packaging
- Logistic carton codes
- Barcode requirements for different packaging levels
- Common mistakes in designing barcodes
- Barcode verification
Session 2: Barcode Printing Technology
- Overview of different technologies available
Session 3: Data Preparation
- Maintaining and capturing parent-child relationships
- Pre-requisites to upload data to the DAVA portal
- Data upload guidelines and preparation in XML
- Validation using XML schemas
Who should attend?
Professionals from IT, Packaging and Legal/Regulatory departments from each company should attend the workshop.
