French healthcare sector is deeply impacted by new regulations. A new French law allows GPOs to make it mandatory for suppliers to use a datapool to submit product records for e-procurements. The European Falsified Medicines Directive changes the ways healthcare actors manage traceability of pharmaceuticals. Outside Europe, exporting French manufacturers have to comply with new requirements related to medical devices. GS1 standards play a strategic role in all these changes. GS1 France has set up a conference last November 22nd to inform the healthcare community of all these developments. 400 people from 10 countries attended the round tables and tribunes and shared good practices at the market place of 20 solution providers.
