What is the DSCSA?

The Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA), enacted by Congress on November 27, 2013, is an overhaul of federal drug safety regulations that will eventually move the pharmaceutical industry toward unit level serialization of drugs.  The DSCSA outlines the steps to build an electronic and interoperable system to track and trace certain prescription drugs.  It was created to help enhance FDA's ability to protect consumers from counterfeit, stolen, contaminated, or otherwise harmful prescription drugs.  The system will also improve detection and removal of potentially dangerous drugs from the drug supply chain to protect U.S. consumers.   

Remember, the DSCSA is a law designed to help re-enforce prescription drug quality and to promote patient safety.
