Indian Pharma Exporters Face Challenges in Barcoding

Indian exporters are facing challenges in complying with barcode deadline date i.e 1st January 2013 for secondary packaging . Industry sent their representation to DGFT through Pharmexcil to extend  the deadline date and to dilute requirements but it went unheard.
GS1 India, itself is not clear in providing guidance to Indian industry on barcoding. Guidance document prepared by them has been changed twice and thus leaving industry in very confused state. Joint meeting of  Pharmexcil ,GS1 India and Indian Industry representatives was  scheduled with Government  in January and February this year to discuss  issues but efforts of industry went in vain. Pharmexcil is also not taking responsibility in addressing barcode related issues of industry.
Sundaram Technologies have a simple and effective solution to comply with the barcoding norms. The Generalize Solution for Barcoding is not at all possible as most of the solution provider is offering in market.
Following are the Key Factors which must be considered while taking decision to purchase barcoding solutions:

1. Volume of Production
2. Skilled Staff
3. Total Project cost
4. Consumable cost
5. After Sales Service
6. Software Application and possibilities of integration with Companies IT Environment [Future Scope]
7. Solution Provider must be an IT Company, so future updates/changes as per government law must be easily deployed.
8. Barcoding must utilize in ware house management and ERP application
9. Application supplier must have Online and SMS tracking capabilities for future, so if government don't take any decision in barcoding, a company can get some output of this all expanses in terms of product security, tracking and duplication.

We advise all the companies who is in search of a good and genuine solution that, the barcoding norms of government is not only just printing and pasting barcode on product but effective tracking and database management is also important and an IT Company can only takes this kind of projects to take you far in future.

India rejects claims it exported fake medicine to Africa

India has denied claims that it has exported large quantities of counterfeit medication to Africa, after the Guardian published a front-page expos矇on the phenomenon.
"No fake medicines have been sent from India to the continent of Africa," a spokesman for the ministry of external affairs in Delhi said.
The article cited experts and NGO reports as saying that up to a third of anti-malarial drugs in Uganda and Tanzania might be fake or substandard, and the majority of them were manufactured in China and India. The drugs look identical to real ones, and can only be distinguished with lab testing.
Aside from malaria drugs, analysis of antibiotics and contraceptives has also identified fakes. "Some pills contain no active ingredients, some are partial strength and some the wrong formulation entirely," said the article.
The fake medications have led to deaths, prolonged illness and increased drug resistance in parts of east Africa, the article said.
The Indian official said allegations of the nature of those mentioned in the Guardian had "surfaced previously" and "had been thoroughly investigated both in Africa and in India and found to be baseless".
"As the Guardian report acknowledges, India has stepped up oversight on this subject [and] ... continues to interact extensively with countries in Africa to provide quality medicines at affordable prices," the spokesman said.
"The government of India is committed to continue this co-operation in the strong belief that this is an ideal means of enhancing south-south co-operation and engagement."
Chinese officials also denied the charges made in the report.
Counterfeit drugs are a long-running issue in China. According to official statements, Chinese police seized £113m of fake pharmaceuticals in July alone and £19m worth in November. Many ingredients were found to be harmful or toxic.
The Indian health ministry launched a huge campaign last month to check the quality of medication manufactured across the country. India is home to more than 10,000 drug manufacturers.
