Project should include participation by supply chain partners

Counterfeiting is a priority across the phamaceutical supply chain. Serialization and Pedigree requirements and solutions are still evolving. I would like to see participation in these types of projects by Manufacturers, Distributors, Retailers and Consumers. Also, the many standards determining bodies, i.e, GS1, HDMA, etc. should be connected to the effort. There needs to be a holistic approach that ties together the many requirements and regulations into one universal solution with defined standards. Many supply chain partners are looking to 2015 and the California mandate. This effort should be synergistic with state and federal regulations.
