Data Carrier: GS1 Data Matrix
Detail: With a declaration from government sources, Jordan has declared that data matrix will be used in all medications. Therefore, the data matrix should be used as the data carrier during serialization. Due to the pandemic and other considerations, the term originally planned to serialize the medications through the end of 2019 was extended to the end of 2021. The notice that was published later stated that the deadline for the postponement was December 30, 2022.
However, the Jordanian Food and Drug Administration has issued a new circular, where the deadline for data matrix application and serialization in secondary packaging of pharmaceutical products is 30 June 2023.
JFDA has issued a new circular extending the application deadline for serialization using data matrix in secondary packaging of regulated pharmaceutical products until September 30, 2023.
