Counterfeits make up about 1% of US pharmaceuticals sales and about 10% of European sales. As a result, European governments are passing track and trace legislation to combat counterfeits and reimbursement fraud. Spain, Portugal, Belgium and Italy have already enacted laws, while Turkey and France passed legislation to be enacted in early 2009 and late 2010, respectively. These new laws mark a new trend. They both require the manufacturer to add a unique identification number to the unit packaging using a 2D data matrix barcode. Previously, 2D data matrix barcodes were supplied by the government at an estimated cost in excess of €400 million. Some global pharmaceutical manufacturers, such as AstraZeneca (AZ), are taking additional steps to combat the counterfeits that put their customers and brand at risk. All of this activity is resulting in a convergence of efforts with some common themes: • unique identification unit dose package (serialisation) • 2D data matrix barcodes as data carrier • use of GS1 Healthcare • exchange of serialised product data through the eco-system.
