Critical Program for
Small and Mid-Size Pharmaceutical Companies

Launching a new product is the lifeblood of any pharmaceutical company.  For small to mid-size companies, it can be the very essence of surviving or failing.  In many cases a brand owner spends millions of dollars in product development, regulatory filings, product promotions, staff, etc. to get the product to market.  Often, new companies are solely devoted to R&D, clinical studies, regulatory filings, manufacturing, supply chain operations, and other activities deemed critical to the success of the launch.  Often, they are too busy to consider items that may be considered peripheral to the task at hand.  Product Security Programs and their benefits are often overlooked while launching a new product.

Anti-Counterfeit Programs

Implementing methods and features designed to prevent shipment tampering must also be considered when offering robust supply chain solutions.   It is critical to establish an anti-counterfeiting strategy and baseline requirements to support secure shipment protocols.  Creating a foundational strategy will promote regulatory compliance, brand protection and a cost-effective approach to security.   Areas of focus are:

  • Regulatory Compliance Support

  • Program Strategy Development

  • Feature Selection and Authentication Protocols

  • Product Risk Assessment
