Exceptions Management focuses on identifying and resolving issues arising during pharmaceutical product manufacturing and distribution. It is critical in the pharmaceutical sector due to patient safety and regulatory compliance and to avoid supply chain delays and product quarantine.

As trading partners continue to implement and fine-tune their processes to adhere to the DSCSA requirements, errors related to discrepancies between the data received and the product received in the shipment are expected to grow 5 to 10x. Considering the increasing challenges related to counterfeits, drug shortages and patient safety, efficient handling of exceptions is imperative.
