The MC 2D Barcode Implementation Task Group is seeking volunteers to participate.

    The task group was formed at the May Joint Technical Work Group Meetings to: 

    • Monitor and provide appropriate industry guidance during the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) indicated transition from the UPC-A Linear Bar Code to the 2D Bar Code;
    • Determine which products will be removing the UPC-A Linear Bar code from product label and when these changes will take place;
    • Create a reporting method;
    • Work with the FDA on guidance for the industry and possible enforcement delay of implementation of 2D barcode; and
    • Work with manufacturers to determine how and when product packaging is being changed to comply with the DSCSA.
    If you are already a participant in the NCPDP Collaborative Workspace, just check the MC 2D Barcode Implementation Task Group on your NCPDP Collaborative Workspace User Profile to join the task group.
