Training description

It is the course’s goal to inform about the latest developments in serialisation & authentication coming from the European and International Regulations such as the Russian Crypto Coding requirements, the EU Directive 2011/62/EC and corresponding Delegated Regulation and the US Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA). Also, the Medical Device Regulation (EU) 2017/745 coming into force on 26th May 2020 and the UDI-marking requirements in Europe and US will be dealt with. Generally, the challenges and solutions how to comply with serialisation, tamper verification and packaging requirements of medicinal products and the requirements of Medical Devices and Unique Device Identification in the different markets are core content of this course. Best practice examples will demonstrate how the new European and International requirements on verification of the authenticity of each single medicinal product and the new regulations on medical devices can be put into practice. This course will also explain requirements for Artwork Management, Packaging specification and typesetting.


The training course will support you in collecting, sorting and proper understanding of the requirements of the serialisation Requirements in Russia, in Europe, the US and other markets and the Medical Device Regulation. This includes the relevant information related to the Russian Crypto Coding, the defined two EU-safety features (unique identifier and tamper evident closure) and the US and International serialisation requirements. Also, this course will deal with the existing and emerging global serialization and track and trace requirements for medicines and their packaging in markets such as China, Korea, US and others. This course will also deal with Artwork Security and Audit Trails of Artworks Management.

  1. Get the timing right.
    Many people are afraid to request for training budget, because they can’t seem to find the “perfect time” to do it. Well, there’s no perfect time to ask for it, but there are definitely some moments that are better than others. For instance, if your boss is about to take a two week vacation, he/she might be in a good mood. If he/she just lost a major account, may not be wise at that juncture.
  2. Make a case for yourself
    When you ask for budget, you should be prepared with specific details and explanations about what is in it for the company and you’re superior. If you go into a meeting and just say, “I want to get budget for a conference,” it’s likely that your request won’t be taken seriously. If you want to plan ahead, then you should be prepared to explain the following points:
    1. Start by stating your accomplishments
    2. Show that you’re ready for more responsibility and eager to learn
    3. Describe:
    a) How this event will increase your productivity?
    b) How you will need less supervision
    c) How you can bring back the knowledge to the company
    4. Follow up
You might find free to attend events which are usually organized by a solution/service provider within the industry. Unlike at free to attend events, on a paid event you will find more diverse industry knowledge rather than presentations related to services or solutions.
In case you cannot attend for both days, you can always attend for just 1 day of the event. In this case we will send you all presentations of the 2 days. The participation fee is 70% of the original investment. In case you would like to attend the event for just 1 day please contact us on booking[at]glceurope.com
In case you are busy on 1 of the days, you certainly can split the 2 day conference with one of your colleague. All you need to do is send us an e-mail to booking[at]glceurope.com
We understand that not all senior-level professionals might be available on the dates. As the event is an annual event, most of the attendees try to postpone their engagements or send a small group from their teams to benefit from the conference.
