Excerpt from Leading the News -

On June 3rd, the House of Representatives passed, by voice vote, the Safeguarding America’s Pharmaceuticals Act (H.R. 1919), a bill to increase security in the prescription drug supply chain and limit the prevalence of counterfeit medicines. While the bill passed, House Democrats have criticized the legislation for not incorporating an “an electronic, interoperable unit-level tracking system.” Progress on “track and trace” now moves to the Senate, where the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee passed its version of the legislation on May 22nd. Unlike the House bill, the Senate version would move to unit-level traceability within 10 years.

Please see full issue below for more information.
