The Middle East & Asia


The life sciences industries in the Middle East and Asia are working to combat the big business of counterfeit goods, not only because those counterfeits bring about lost revenue, but also due to the fact that they are often made with harmful, unregulated ingredients. The governments in these geographic areas are bringing about change that requires new regulations to be met, with the main goal of these regulations being protection: protecting the community with control standards and traceability that ensures safety of food, pharmaceuticals, medical devices and more. Regulations also help to prevent the sale of fake and illegal ingredients, ensuring safe products from production to consumer.

Saudi Food and Drug Authority (SFDA)

The Saudi Food and Drug Authority (SFDA) protects the community through regulations and controls that ensure the safety of food, pharmaceuticals, medical devices and other products. One of the main ways the SFDA promotes and protects public health is by requiring traceability of pharmaceuticals throughout the supply chain. To comply with these regulations, products must be properly serialized, traced and labeled from manufacturing to shipping to dispensing 

Badan Pengawas Obat dan Makanan (BPOM)

The National Agency for Drug and Food Control of Indonesia (Indonesian: Badan Pengawas Obat dan Makanan, BPOM) is a government agency of Indonesia. BPOM is responsible for protecting public health through the control and supervision of prescription and over-the-counter pharmaceutical drugs. Specific serialization regulations are required to be compliant with the Indonesian government regulation.

İlaç Takip Sistemi (İTS)

The Turkish Ministry of Food Agriculture and Livestock has implemented a tracking system for plant protection products to prevent the sale of fake and illegal crop protection products, ensuring plant producers’ safe access to these products. To realize end-to-end traceability of crop protection products, all stakeholders in the agrochemical supply chain – from the manufacturer and importer to the wholesaler and vendor – must complete different duties according to Turkish law. 

Following the BPOM and SFDA regulations that have been established in the Middle East/Asia includes establishing guidelines for full traceability of products, especially those products being imported. To comply with many of the food and pharmaceutical regulations, products must be properly serialized, traced and labeled for ease of regulation approval, from manufacturing to shipping to dispensing.
