As the pharmaceutical industry becomes increasingly susceptible to counterfeit medicines and fraud within the supply chain, Servier has been proactive in implementing solutions to combat these problems across all of our manufacturing operations.

Serialization & Aggregation

With global legislation requiring serialization and aggregation capabilities, Servier has proactively implemented a global serialization project within our international network. Our systems have the ability to generate or receive serial numbers from partners. Additionally, we can print during packaging and send data to brand owners or repository systems.

Serialization and aggregation are included in our packaging services. Servier conforms to the GS1 standard with a 2D datamatrix barcode for serialization and an SSCC code for aggregation. We also comply with Chinese regulations.

The (serialized) markets directly supplied by our sites are:

  • South Korea
  • China
  • Saudi Arabia
  • Russia
  • Taiwan
  • Egypt
  • Oman
  • Europe
  • Jordan
  • Brazil

Tamper Evident Capability

Our sites in Europe facilitate tamper-evident folding-blister cartons in order to comply with upcoming EU legislation on serialization and tamper evidence. Other tamper-evident features are available, including tamper-evident labelling, glued folding boxes and perforated boxes.
