TraceLink Inc. Launches a New India Compliance Module

By CIOReview | Thursday, March 10, 2016

FREMONT, CA: As a preeminent track and trace network company for connecting the Life Sciences supply chain and eliminating counterfeit prescription drugs from the global marketplace, TraceLink Inc. recently announced that its India Compliance module will be generally available. India Compliance module is latest software that allows any pharmaceutical manufacturer to quickly meet a range of serialization, reporting and compliance requirements established by the India Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) in October 2015.

With the forthcoming Drug Authentication and Verification Application (DAVA) portal interfaces in mind, which are still in developmental phase, TraceLink has assimilated future workflow capabilities into the module. Once India generates the reporting formats, TraceLink will immediately configure the India Compliance module, enabling customers to create the required outbound reports.

India Compliance is purpose-built to assist pharmaceutical manufacturers in conforming India compliance requirements for serialization and reporting, which came into force in October 2015. TraceLink’s India Compliance software leverages justified and commercially tested components of other TraceLink compliance applications for master data management, serialization workflow event triggers, and government report generation. Adopting the software, companies will reduce the time, cost and risk associated with achieving compliance in India.

TraceLink’s India Compliance defines serial number templates that utilize serialization hierarchies required by the India regulations and will manage India reporting requirements from a single platform by extending the existing TraceLink reporting efficiencies for other countries to accommodate India record-keeping and retrieval.

“One of the benefits of having the industry’s largest track and trace software development team is that we are continuously able to be first to market with the most comprehensive compliance applications—and our new India Compliance module is just the latest proof point of this industry leadership,” says Shabbir Dahod, president and CEO of TraceLink. “India is a great example of how our network-tenant platform offers customers a huge advantage. While the India regulations are well defined, DAVA officials are still working to develop some of the required interfaces. By working closely with DAVA to understand all the requirements, we’ve built future workflow capabilities on top of what customers need today. As soon as DAVA makes its new interfaces available, a single update on the Life Sciences Cloud will make the interfaces available to all of our customers instantly. Companies using other single-tenant or on premise systems will have to perform individual software updates for every business connection they have—and this introduces cost and time increases that TraceLink customers never have to experience."
