Identifying and Mitigating Global Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Risks
Pharmaceutical products are prone to a number of supply chain disruptions that increase
costs, create potential patient safety issues, and damage brand reputation.
Pharmaceutical supply chains across the globe continue to be subject to alarmingly high
levels of theft, product counterfeiting and supply chain integrity concerns. It's
important that pharmaceutical companies implement risk management strategies to ensure
their global operations remain compliant with corporate and government security
policies, GMP/GDP regulations, and EHS requirements to protect consumers from imitation
drugs, and health and safety hazards.
Identifying where high risk suppliers are located allows organizations to effectively
direct their efforts and resources to where they're needed most. Utilizing
geographic and supplier specific risk data and analysis, will allow Pharmaceutical
corporations to proactively identify and mitigate threats before they can evolve.
Implementing a holistic risk management program will enable organizations to efficiently
analyze and track supplier compliance and risk to ensure their global supply chain
operations are protected.
