Key upcoming dates in Jordan:
30 June 2023 – Deadline for the application of 2D data matrix codes and serialization on secondary packaging of pharmaceutical products.
The JFDA was created in 2003 to ensure the safety and efficacy of drugs and the quality and safety of food. After postponing the implementation of 1D linear and 2D data matrix codes several times in recent years, the JFDA has now established new regulations for the application of 2D data matrix codes and serialization on secondary packaging of pharmaceutical products.
- June 30, 2023: Deadline for 2D data matrix codes and serialization on secondary packaging
- By this date, pharmaceutical companies in Jordan must apply 2D data matrix codes and serialization on secondary packaging of their products to comply with the JFDA's regulations.
To facilitate the visual correct reading control together with a two-dimensional bar code is applied Human-Readable Information (HRI), which includes the following elements:
- Global Trade Item Number (GTIN)
- Batch or Lot Number
- Expiry Date
- Randomized Serial Number
It is important for pharmaceutical companies to work closely with their supply chain partners and technology vendors to ensure that their serialization solutions comply with JFDA regulations and meet the required deadlines. Non-compliance with serialization requirements can result in penalties and delays in product registration and market access in Jordan.
