ESP has moved to strengthen its global serialization alliances and knowledge base by becoming members of two globally recognized and respected organizations – GS1 Healthcare and HDA (Healthcare Distribution Alliance). ESP, as serialization industry leaders, plan that these partnerships will align more closely with ESP’s global organization and thereby allow delivery of enhanced client value.
About GS1 Healthcare

ESP already partners with GS1’s Ireland Section, providing pharmaceutical manufacturers with the expertise to achieve their serialization and anti-counterfeiting obligations in line with the highest global standards.
