Electronic Monitoring Code Zone to Feature Newest Technologies at SinoFoldingCarton 2013
The State Food & Drug Administration (FDA) recently announced its intention to begin electronically monitoring imported drugs.
According to a notice on the State FDA’s website, foreign drug pharmaceutical factories, together with the corresponding production and packaging plants named on the imported drug registration certificate, should be added to China’s drug electronic monitoring network. This means each box of imported drugs will be labeled with an electronic monitoring code.
According to the 12th five-year plan for national drug safety, all drugs and drug manufacturing processes should be monitored electronically by the end of 2015. By July 2012, the State FDA had applied electronic monitoring to basic drugs. It has now begun to do the same for drug manufacturing.
So far, drugs covered in the nationwide electronic monitoring network include 60,000 approvals – 34% of the total. About 3,300 pharmaceutical factories, 68% of the national total, have access to the network. Thanks to the push to meet the requirements of uniform labels for drug electronic monitoring codes, drug manufacturers are experiencing greater demand from packaging and printing companies than ever before. Hence calls for drug factories to meet and talk to printing companies.
As a leading commercial platform for electronic monitoring codes in China, SinoFoldingCarton 2013 will give exhibitors great opportunities to meet buyers with high purchasing ability and intent.
The exhibition will be held at Guangdong Modern International Exhibition Center from August 21 to August 23 in Houjie, Dongguan. China’s highest profile printing companies specializing in electronic monitoring codes will all be featured at the event.
Reed Exhibitions, organizers of SinoFoldingCarton 2013, will feature a special Electronic Monitoring Code Zone on-site to analyze policies and market information related to the industry. The zone will display inkjet printing equipment and technologies applied to drug boxes and packages and offer companies looking to newly enter the drug packaging business an opportunity to learn about the prospects and challenges in this market.
The Electronic Monitoring Code Zone will span 1,000 sqm. It will offer many practical and technical insights, as well as business opportunities for printing factories that provide services for industries such as cosmetics, food, cigarettes, wine and home appliances to enter a new industry.
To date, the Electronic Monitoring Code Zone has attracted a high number of local and international companies, including Kodak, Shanghai Dragon, Win.Win Digital Security, Beijing Xinjianlong, Beijing Shield, Hangzhou Kangdexin, Shanghai Uni-M Tech, Shanghai Sonic Jet, Harbin Xinqi, Shanhe and Shanghai Full Sources Automatic Equipment. These businesses will display their latest electronic monitoring code technology and solutions.
Chen Han, General Sales Manager of Shanghai Dragon Printing Machinery, spoke highly of SinoFoldingCarton 2012. At last year’s show, Mr. Chen found that the Electronic Monitoring Code Zone brought together many key players in the electronic monitoring code field and that these companies brought with them a host of good ideas and practicable solutions. The visitors were very interested in the equipment on display and he believed that this was indicative of a prosperous future for the electronic monitoring code market.
Tan Qiaojun, an esteemed Consultant from the Printing & Printing Equipment Industries Association of China (PPEIAC), has visited the Electronic Monitoring Code Zone three times. Mr. Tan felt that the overall effect of the 2012 feature was excellent due to the fact that it attracted local and international buyers, as well as high profile companies from across the industry. He was delighted to learn that Reed would again host an Electronic Monitoring Code Zone this year.
Collocated with SinoFoldingCarton 2012, the Electronic Monitoring Code Zone will highlight the application of electronic monitoring codes to companies from across the country. The stage is set for this feature to again be one of the highlights of SinoFoldingCarton.
