PDSA Vision for DSCSA Governance: Whitepaper & Webinar Recording
The Pharmaceutical Distribution Security Alliance (PDSA) has released “A Proposal: Governance for DSCSA Phase II Interoperability,” the first in a series of White Papers. Through this series of papers, PDSA seeks to stimulate and advance the stakeholder dialogue related to, and development of, a shared vision for Phase II of the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA).
This paper sets forth a proposal for one possible structure for the establishment of an independent, balanced, sector-neutral governance body and the functions it would be anticipated to perform in executing the vision set out in this White Paper. PDSA is publishing this white paper as a well-thought-out starting point for consideration by stakeholders broadly and, ultimately, formation by a diverse set of stakeholders. Although PDSA hopes this proposal will stimulate action toward establishment of a governance body, PDSA does not intend to act as the governance body. It is recognized that revisions to the structure may be needed in order to develop the breadth of stakeholder support needed to ultimately establish the governance body.
As noted above, we intend this first White Paper to serve as a thought piece to stimulate industry conversation and dialogue. We encourage broad stakeholder feedback on the White Paper by sending your suggestions and edits to [email protected]. PDSA does not intend to independently evaluate the feedback it receives or reissue a revised White Paper but will compile the feedback and make it available to workshop participants and the future Governance Body.
PDSA hosted an informational webinar on April 2, 2019 to introduce the white paper and discuss the content.
