What You Need to Know about the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA)

MPhA’s September Virtual Coffee Break will focus on dispenser requirements under the DSCSA with a focus on the complexities of the law as it relates to pharmacy. Pharmacies will learn about the record keeping requirements of the DSCSA and when pharmacies are required to generate outgoing DSCSA traceability data for their transactions. This will cover sales other than dispensing by pharmacy, “borrow/loan” and other non-dispensing activities by pharmacy will be discussed. The ability to use a third party for DSCSA records storage will be covered as well. Additionally, there are a number of exceptions to the DSCSA that will be discussed. Finally, the DSCSA changes a number of common definitions such as returns and distribution which have an impact to all participants in the supply chain including dispensers.

After participating in the program, attendees will be able to:

  1. List the dispenser recordkeeping requirements under the DSCSAQ
  2. Explain the law’s pharmacy-related complexities
  3. Identify possible partners to assist with recordkeeping requirements
  4. Name the exceptions to the DSCSA

The program is part of the “3-3” Virtual Coffee Break series MPhA has launched on the third day of the week during the third week of the month to keep pharmacists, student pharmacists and pharmacy technicians current on cutting-edge topics presented by expert colleagues. The Virtual Coffee Break has a limited number of spaces, so sign up right away to ensure your spot. The cost is $10 for members, and $25 for non-members. Student pharmacists and residents are provided a complimentary registration.
