Add to Calendar 2021-10-12 10:00:00 2021-10-13 11:30:00 GS1 standards for healthcare suppliers (3 hour course over two days) United Kingdom GS1 UK Europe/London public

Being able to accurately identify, track and trace different elements of the healthcare supply enhances quality of care, patient safety and business processes. Therefore, the US Food and Drug Administration (US FDA), the European Union (EU), the NHS, and many markets besides, require medical and in vitro diagnostic devices and pharmaceuticals to be uniquely identified and barcoded.
