RFID Frequently Asked Question

What is the EPCglobal e-pedigree standard?

The purpose of the EPCglobal e-pedigree standard is to provide the pharmaceutical industry with a common format that supply-chain partners can use to collect pedigree information, upon which providers of pedigree solutions can build their pedigree software offerings. While it addresses only electronic pedigrees (e-pedigrees), as opposed to paper-based ones, the standard does not specify RFID as the only technology that can automatically identify drugs products being shipped and received. An e-pedigree system based on the new standard could instead utilize bar coding or some other technology for automated data collection.
