GS1 standards enable full visibility of pharmaceuticals, from point of production to point of sale, point of dispense or point of care. Implementation of GS1 standards ensures maximum interoperability between traceability systems across the healthcare supply chain and across borders.

An understanding of GS1 standards will be crucial in complying with the Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD), which is currently being implemented across Europe. It’s also vital for meeting the requirements of Trusts across England who are embarking on GS1 adoption programmes.

As a pharmaceutical manufacturer, this course will help you with the foundations to get your barcodes right for global markets.

Who should attend?

This course is aimed at pharmaceutical manufacturers, particularly if you're trading with the NHS or in the EU. Implementation of regulations will require input from a cross-functional team, so this course is recommended for staff from the following departments:
