Frequently Asked Questions

What is VerifyReg?

VerifyReg™ is a data integrity checkmark created to support compliance with companies who need to be compliant with the US FDA Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA). VerifyReg™ checkmarks indicate that the company is adhering to the code structure of the mandated and preferred data markers used on pharmaceuticals, which includes linear barcodes and 2D Data Matrix codes. When a company properly upholds the accuracy and integrity of these data markers, this prevents the introduction of counterfeit, damaged or illegitimate products into the pharmaceutical supply chain.

Who are the users of VerifyReg?

Pharmaceutical manufacturers, wholesalers, dispensers, and packagers.

Who benefits from VerifyReg?

Manufacturers, wholesalers, dispensers, and packagers.

Manufacturers benefit by being able to quickly promote their adherence to DSCSA compliance with the VerifyReg™  checkmark. This can help create new business and promote their organization in general.

Wholesalers, dispensers, and packagers benefit by having more confidence in the products they distribute and dispense; because they know that the companies they are getting product from have declared compliance.

What business challenges does VerifyReg™  address?

VerifyReg™ addresses several business challenges.

For a manufacturer or packager, it is a quick and easy way to explain that they are compliant with DSCSA rules and regulations. 

For wholesalers, it is a less time-consuming way to vet potential suppliers. By checking to see if a company has a VerifyReg™ checkmark, they will know immediately the company has verified their data elements to adhere to all DSCSA mandated and preferred data markers.

Although further vetting will be needed, it is a great first step that significantly reduces the time it takes to find the best supplier.

How long does my verification last?

Product verification is for one-year from the time verified. A renewal notice will be sent to you 60-days prior to expiration.

What Standards Does VerifyReg™  Utilize?

• ISO/IEC 15416:2016 – Automatic identification and data capture techniques — Bar code print quality test specification — Linear symbols

ISO/IEC 15416:2016 sets out the procedure for measuring specific attributes of barcode symbols. It also establishes a process for assessing overall symbol quality based on these measurements. Additionally, the standard offers insights into potential causes of deviations from optimal grades to guide users in corrective actions. While primarily designed for symbologies with defined reference decode algorithms and intended for linear scanning, the methodology can be applied, in part or in full, to other symbologies.

• ISO/IEC 15415:2011 – Information technology — Automatic identification and data capture techniques — Bar code symbol print quality test specification — Two-dimensional symbols

ISO/IEC 15415:2011 outlines two methodologies for measuring specific attributes of two-dimensional bar code symbols, tailored to multi-row and matrix symbologies respectively. It also establishes procedures for evaluating and grading these measurements to determine overall symbol quality. The standard provides insights into potential causes of deviation from optimal grades to aid users in corrective actions. While primarily designed for symbologies with defined reference decode algorithms, the methodologies can be applied, in part or in full, to similar symbologies. For direct part marks, combining ISO/IEC TR 29158 with ISO/IEC 15415:2011 may yield more accurate correlation between measurement results and scanning performance.

• ISO/IEC 29158:2020 – Information technology — Automatic identification and data capture techniques — Direct Part Mark (DPM) Quality Guideline

This engineering document is aimed at verifier manufacturers and application specification developers. It introduces modifications to the symbol quality methodology outlined in ISO/IEC 15415, along with a symbology specification. The changes encompass alternative illumination conditions, new terms and parameters, adjustments in measurement and grading of specific parameters, and the way grading results are reported. The document's primary purpose is to evaluate the symbol quality of direct marked parts, particularly those where the mark is directly applied to the item's surface and a two-dimensional imager is used for reading. Additionally, this method can be extended to symbols produced by other means, especially in scenarios where both direct part marked (DPM) symbols and non-DPM symbols are scanned in the same environment, with the reported grade being in the DPM format rather than ISO/IEC 15415.
