As per the 2019 Saleable Returns Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) requirements, the distributors must verify the returned pharmaceutical products before reselling the products.


The Product Verification DSCSA application enables the distributors to verify the products by connecting to the Verification Router Service (VRS).


This article provides an overview of the application and a typical configuration workflow to ease understanding.


TABLE OF CONTENTS


Administrator UI Overview (Tabs)


The Product Verification DSCSA web application allows you to configure the mobile operators and manage the settings at the application level. 


Operators 


You can assign the operators to use the Product Verification DSCSA mobile application to scan and verify the products.


Settings 


You can select a previously configured MediLedger Distributor business channel to send the scanned data through VRS MediLedger.


If you do not set a channel here, the VRS request is sent through the Trust.med (or shortly .med) services.


You can also include the verifiable credentials in the VRS requests. To use verifiable credentials, you need to provide a digital identifier (DID) that was created in the Credentialing of ATP for Regulatory Observance (CARO).


Configuration and Operation Workflow




Before You Begin


Make sure that:

  • You have a valid DID in CARO. This is a prerequisite for using verifiable credentials.
  • You have assigned mobile users to your tenant (company). Mobile users can be operators of your warehouse. For more information, see Managing Users.
  • Optionally, you have created the MediLedger Distributor channel. For more information, see Configuring a MediLedger Distributor Channel and Viewing Verifications. As an alternative, you can connect to .med and it does not need a separate channel.


Procedure


1. Decide how to connect to VRS, activate verifiable credentials, and activate the verification of the responder. For more information, see Settings:

  • To connect to VRS MediLedger, select the MediLedger Distributor channel.
  • To connect to .med, you do not need to select a channel in the application.
  • To activate verifiable credentials, you need a valid DID in CARO and you need to specify it under the Settings tab.


2. Assign operators to the Product Verification DSCSA application. Optionally, you can limit the devices the operator can use for the scanning. For more information, see Managing Operators.


3. As an operator, verify packs in the warehouse. For more information, see Movilitas Mobile for Product Verification DSCSA.


4. As an administrator, view the verification logs.
