Serialization is a global phenomenon. Various countries, representing more than 70% of the world population, have legislation or laws that govern the drug supply chain. The first wave of serialization in the global markets started with Turkey and Argentina in 2009. It was soon followed by China, South Korea, US, and Brazil. The new deadlines from these countries are quickly approaching. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need help to sort them out.
