In a bid to expand its business globally CosmoTrace, a leading Consulting organization that offers Serialization & Traceability strategy consulting, has set up a new office in Sharjah Media City (Shams), UAE to provide Traceability & Serialization consulting services in the Middle East to the Pharma and other highly regulated industries.

I believe expanding our operations in the UAE would be a first step for us in catering to the needs of pharmaceutical companies in the Middle east. Our new office in the UAE will be instrumental in meeting the demands of the growing and evolving serialization & traceability requirements in the Middle east, said Zeeshan Ahmed, Founder & CEO, CosmoTrace.
We at CosmoTrace are committed to providing Pharma companies with a full suite of Serialization services and we are confident that our extensive knowledge and experience working with the clients in Europe & the USA would bring both speed as well as optimization to the pharmaceutical companies in the GCC region as we are well aware of the challenges that arise in the implementation of serialization, he added.

Traceability & serialization requirements are being mandated across the MENA region to combat the growing problem of counterfeit medicines. There has been good progress made by Saudi Arabia, UAE and Bahrain in relation to the Serialization & counterfeit efforts so far. Saudi Arabia & Bahrain are already LIVE and UAE compliance deadline is the 13th of Dec 2022. The remaining countries in the region are expected to follow suit and introduce the serialization requirements sooner or later.

Failing to achieve compliance with the upcoming regulations can put Pharma companies at risk for non-compliance and it could lead to penalties such as fines or getting barred from product launches which can have significant business and financial implications.

Therefore, pharmaceutical companies selling or planning to sell in this region need to clearly understand the regulatory requirements and implement the necessary changes to their product labeling and internal processes. CosmoTrace with its experience can help pharmaceutical companies in this region to meet the local as well as global compliance requirements.
