The problem

For any compliance program to be effective, you must be able to trust the data tracked along the way. Most track and trace programs rely on serialization with unique codes marked on each product. Unfortunately, serialization alone does not prevent fraud or illegal activity. Barcodes and QR codes are easily copied and reused.
