Saudi Food and Drug Authority (SFDA)


The Saudi Food and Drug Authority (SFDA) protects the community through regulations and controls that ensure the safety of food, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and other products. One of the main ways the SFDA promotes and protects public health is by requiring traceability of pharmaceuticals throughout the supply chain.

Key Challenges

  • Ensuring product authenticity and integrity
  • Maintaining visibility and traceability throughout the supply chain
  • Investigating and removing illegitimate products
  • Serializing products

The Middle East & Asia regulations such as SFDA include guidelines for full traceability of products, especially those products being imported. To comply with many of the food and pharmaceutical regulations, products must be properly serialized, traced, and labeled for ease of regulation approval, from manufacturing to shipping to dispensing. Track and Trace solutions can provide the needed transparency and serialization that is required to comply with each country’s regulations, without creating production delays. With an expert system in place, exporters can rest assured they will have the proper regulations in place for country-specific compliance, and local manufacturers and warehouses will be equipped to receive approval for importing, storage and sale of all food, beverage and pharmaceutical products to consumers.
