What is it?
The Drug Quality and Security Act (DQSA), came into effect for manufacturers, distributors and repackagers on January 1, 2015. For dispensers (those administering drugs) the DQSA is effective as of July 1, 2015. Title II of DQSA, the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA), outlines critical steps to build an electronic system to identify and trace certain prescription drugs as they are distributed in the United States.
