Thepharmaceutical industry, together with the foodindustry, is one of the most advanced in traceabilitysystem implementation, as it has found to be stronglyaffected by the counterfeiting phenomenon. In thispaper, a brief overview of traceability internationalregulations in the pharmaceutical sector and of theimpact of its implementation on production processesand logistics will be continued, in order to highlight themain drivers of its large and fast diffusion. Technologiesdeveloped will also be presented and criticalities, andthe benefits of traceability system implementation willbe analysed.
