Consumption rates for pharmaceuticals and food supplements are on the rise globally. This has also fuelled the potential for misuse, unintended overdosing, counterfeiting and other illegal activities that could potentially be life-threatening.

The Food Safety Authorities (FSA) in many countries are imposing more stringent measures, which includes more informative and responsible labelling for better consumer protection.

The CFDA assigns unique product identities or ‘eCodes’ to packaging units, verified through Drug Electronic Supervision system. The printed eCode contains both machine and human readable elements. The code format is a 128C barcode with a 20-digit serial number containing nine-digital government issued serialised number.
