Excellis Health Solutions, the global leader in strategic supply chain consulting is proud to announce our strategic partnership with Tracelink to deliver a first-class Russian Compliance Solution. Having worked extensively with every segment of the pharmaceutical supply chain including manufacturers, contract packagers, third party logistics providers, wholesalers, hospital systems, and retail pharmacies, Excellis is uniquely positioned to help because of our experience from “make to take”, not just in the United States, but worldwide. Specifically, Excellis specialises in traceability of pharmaceutical product to comply with the Russian traceability requirement established with the Federal Service for Surveillance in Healthcare (Roszdravnadzor).
Under Russian Federal Law No. 425-FZ, pharmaceutical companies are required to manage serialization and traceability of medicines from manufacturer to patient, and report product and transaction events to the central government system. By 2020, all medicines imported into and traded within Russia must comply with the regulation, applying to over 370 manufacturers supplying medicines within, and into the Russian market. A recent TraceLink poll showed that 82% of respondents with Russian track and trace requirements feel that Russia’s compliance regulations are more complex than any other country. Tracelink will benefit from the partnership between Excellis (and KORUS Consulting) as they provide those in the supply chain with unparalleled expertise and practical local knowledge to secure their future business in the region.
Karan Narang, President, International at Excellis Health Solutions, states: “Our partnership with Tracelink will allow pharmaceutical companies to leverage Excellis’ industry-leading subject matter expertise and a comprehensive, yet easy to manage, global compliance solution, in order to successfully meet the Russian requirements on time. Excellis is already a strategic partner with Tracelink and we look forward to increased collaboration to provide local access and support to the Russian market.”
Shabbir Dahod, president and CEO at TraceLink, states: “For pharmaceutical companies complying with the complicated Russian requirements, TraceLink not only provides them with a locally implemented, global compliance platform that orchestrates compliance-related business processes between their partners, but a solution that is also agile enough to adapt to the continuous changes and evolution of the Russian law by leveraging existing integrations done with previous markets. Furthermore, our partnership with Excellis will allow TraceLink to service the needs of the Russian market with local subject matter expertise and resources in the native Russian language, creating the best possible experience for our customers while ensuring both global and local in-market support.”
Built on TraceLink’s existing network tenant platform and instrumented with the core serialization, master data, integration, and compliance functionalities seen in all other TraceLink compliance solutions, the Russia solution is designed to meet the complex data choreography requirements for Russia compliance, TraceLink’s pre-configurable workflows and application logic enable companies to report on serialized events, and manage import, export, receipt, transfer, and shipment processes.
Excellis is also partnered with Russia-based IT consulting firm, KORUS Consulting, to deliver end-to-end support for companies working within the Russian pharmaceutical supply chain. This means Excellis brings with them a local extension in Russia, creating a stronger offering to TraceLink.
