Pedigree Tracking - Automated Warehouse System/Enterprise Resource Planning Software: A 21CFR Part 203 Compliance Stepping Stone
The FDA will no longer 'Stay' the inevitable. Pharmaceutical companies will have to comply with 21 CFR Part 203 by the year 2011. An AWS, integrated with an ERP, gives pharmaceutical manufacturers the most complete manufacturing and tracing system necessary to uphold the integrity of their products as well as take the lead in establishing the requirements for the FDA pedigree tracking ruling that affects all parties in the pharmaceutical distribution chain. The PDMA requires drug distributors to provide documentation of the chain of custody of drug products, hence the term "Pedigree", throughout the distribution system.
