Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA)

Posted June 24, 2015

As of July 1, 2015, per the requirements of the Drug Quality and Security Act (DQSA), pharmacies and dispensers will be required to accept and maintain Transaction Information, Transaction History and Transaction Statement (TI, TH, TS) data for all Rx product passing through the supply chain, and will be required to obtain and hold the data for a six-year period.

 

AmerisourceBergen Drug Corporation will leverage ABC PassPort to pass the transactional data to Drug Corporation pharmacy and dispenser customers. Customers ordering ASD products through ABC PassPort will also utilize ABC PassPort to pull the data.
