GS1 to launch healthcare industry Recallnet

Not-for-profit standards and barcoding body GS1 Australia will launch a healthcare industry version of its Recallnet system for product recall and withdrawal notifications for therapeutic goods in September.

GS1 Recallnet Healthcare has been developed over three years by GS1 Australia in association with NEHTA, the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), state and territory health departments and the industry.

It will provide an electronic product recall notification system in the Australian healthcare sector to improve the speed, efficiency and accuracy of the recall process for therapeutic goods.

A similar service was launched for the food industry in 2011, with grocery, food and liquor products able to be withdrawn or recalled quickly and easily.

GS1 Recallnet Healthcare will allow users to create recall and non-recall notifications following the uniform recall procedure for therapeutic goods guidelines and to submit recall notifications to the TGA for review and approval.
