The Asia Pacific Council for Trade Facilitation and Electronic Business (AFACT), under the United Nations Centre for Trade Facilitation and Electronic Business (UN/CEFACT), awarded the e-ASIA Award for best trade facilitation system in the region to DAVA, a GS1 standards-based traceability system for pharmaceutical.

DAVA (Drug Authentication and Verification Application), a national portal, tracks and traces the movement of pharmaceuticals exported from the country.
It was launched by India’s Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) last year to help prevent counterfeit drugs from entering the supply chain.

Once fully implemented, approximately 250 large and more than 8,000 small and medium businesses would use this system to upload daily production data of their export consignments.

The system also enables product authentication by barcode scanning through its mobile app, which can be used by consumers, regulators and custom officials worldwide.
