The FDA granted a delay for dispensers to comply with the drug tracking requirements set forth in the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA). Dispensers now have until November 1, 2015 to implement the requirements. BGOV reported that three pharmacy organizations recently asked the FDA to delay the enforcement of the requirement, citing a compressed implementation timetable of a 2013 law and the potential for disruptions in the pharmaceutical supply chain. The FDA issued the industry guidance in response to that request. Manufacturers, wholesale distributors and repackagers originally had to meet these same requirements by January 1, 2015, although the FDA also granted them more time to comply.
