//Pharma Level 4/5 Expert

Medical supplies traceability throughout its chain.

R&B Pharma

The traceability solution developed by R&B complies with the legislation in place (Law 11.903/2009 and PL 4069/2015) and is currently integrated with all the major players in serialization hardware and software. Regardless legal provisions, companies in the pharmaceutical segment are increasingly and voluntarily adapting the traceability process for their products as they identify the administrative, commercial and logistics benefits of this system.
According to the World Health Organization estimations, about 19% of drugs consumed in Brazil are counterfeit or smuggled. Traceability is a tool that allows identifying and fighting that kind of crime, which impacts millions of people.



Serialization and aggregation – generation of unique serial numbers to be printed on each drug package as well as the generation of aggregating labels, which streamline the physical transfer of items across the supply chain.

Messaging – communication gateway between the capture of traceability events and its storage within R&B database, also allowing aggregating and disaggregating of items, besides communication with Corporative ERP, regulatory agencies and supply chain partners, all based on each client’s need.

Data Repository and Custody – data storage within R&B database using cloud tool in partnership with Amazon Web Services, enabling the management of all items, in addition to consultations and registrations.
