The Registry helps pharmaceutical manufacturers electronically communicate with direct and indirect dispensers. Our solution is scalable and ready to meet DSCSA requirements right out of the box.



One Connection, Billions of Exchanges

DigitalLink noM

Internet Protocol (IP):

https:// stands for Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure. It is the protocol where encrypted HTTP data is transferred over a secure connection.

Root Domain

Root Domain / GTIN:

Outside of the context of DNS, the root domain is commonly the highest level of hierarchy for the website you control. uses a combination of the GTIN (second-level domain) and .med (top-level domain) to create, easily identifiable, product specific URLs. 

Restricted TLD

Restricted Top Level Domain (rTLD):

A top-level domain (TLD) whose registration is limited to people or entities that satisfy certain criteria. Both generic TLDs (.com) and country codes (.eu) can have restrictions. has restricted the use of the rTLD .med to the pharmaceutical and medical device supply chain for the secure transmission of serialized data.

Digital Link

Digital Link:
The fundamental aim of GS1 Digital Link is to enable anyone to find answers to their questions about the thing in front of them. applies this technology standard so that trading partners can ask each other questions for DSCSA compliance.

Where did this product come from?
What’s in this box?
What is the expiration of this product?
Is this product recalled?
What is the tracing endpoint for this product?

A single connection to the registry activates your supply chain data and messages, giving you the ability to:

  • make DSCSA data easily available
  • verify trading partners
  • verify products
  • exchange serialized data
  • securely communicate in an end to end system

Standards Based Technology utilizes the domain name system (DNS), the infrastructure of the internet, to authenticate endpoints and enable electronic communication interactions between verified trading partners.

Built for Data and Communication

Built to facilitate billions of exchanges - the registry is constructed to be the interoperable exchange system for the healthcare supply chain.

Authorized Trade Partners

Utilizing industry accepted methods, the status of your trading partners is verified by prior to the exchange of regulated information within our platform.



Securely Exchange Standardized Data Requests

EPCIS Data Retrieval is revolutionizing the way healthcare supply chain tracing data is exchanged, accessed, and communicated between direct trading partners. domain names and URLs activate your supply chain data and messages, giving you the ability to exchange regulated product data and securely communicate with your direct trading partners.

Standardized Data domains identify authenticated sources of information for drug products utilizing GTINs. Our resolvers organize your question and return results based on the, industry standard, GS1 Digital Link.

Replicate or Query EPCIS

Utilizing the infrastructure of the domain name system (DNS), empowers direct trading partners to easily capture and share EPCIS files, enhanced recall communications, and so much more.

Serialized Data Delivery

Exchange serialized data with direct trading partners by assigning your data access points to GTIN based .med domain names. Direct trading partners can access your data by visiting the "" URL.



Improve Patient Safety

Product Verification using VRS

Dispensers of all sizes can now verify drug products with indirect trading partners. enables any authorized trade partner to verify drug products through the verification router service (VRS).

Product verification can be done through scanning, inventory management integrations, or directly through the registry.

Verify Suspect Product

DSCSA requires that pharmacies, hospitals, and manufacturers have the ability to verify and respond to verification requests. The registry makes it easy to meet these requirments by using just the GTIN.

Improve Patient Safety

Improve patient safety by utilizing our registry of product verification information. Identify the GTIN of a product, visit the "" domain, and verify for a safer drug supply chain.

Built to Integrate closes the technological gap between dispensers and indirect trading partners. Our technology uses internet standards providing ease of use and accessibility while offering ease of integration into any existing application.



Direct & Indirect Targeted Recall Communication

Enhanced Recall Notifications

Drug manufacturers, wholesale distributors, pharmacies, and hospital systems have come together with to collaborate on an enhanced recall system that focuses on delivering critical recall information.

Enhanced Recall Notifications by streamlines the communication and response mechanisms of the recall process. This environmentally conscious solution produces: increased efficiency, cost savings, and improved patient safety.

Improved Efficiency

Manufacturers improve the efficiency of recall notifications and acknowledgement reporting with This electronic notification and reporting platform provides more insight and streamlines delivery of notifications to reach beyond the direct consignee.

Environmentally Conscious

Reduce cost and waste. Our Enhanced Recall Notification platform delivers your notifications, collects acknowledgements, and provides progress reports digitally - Significantly reducing the use of paper and its associated administrative fees.

Targeted Notifications

Recall Notifications can now be sent to direct consignees, subscribers, and recipients of the product you recall - reducing notification noise, improving awareness, and decreasing acknowledgement response times.


Having successfully completed the first phase of work, and industry stakeholders are beginning a second phase of development that will accomplish targeted recall communications, significantly enhancing recalled drug communication with direct and indirect trading partners who have received recalled product.
