Anti drug counterfeiting group hires new advisor

InfraTrac : 30 April, 2009  (Company News)
Industry expert joins advisory board of InfraTrac to assist in the development of its products for fighting the increasing problem of counterfeit goods in the pharmaceutical market
InfraTrac has announced the appointment of Dr Harvey Bale, recently retired from the position of Director-General of the Geneva-based International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers & Associations (IFPMA), to its Board of Advisors.

Dr Bale is widely recognized as a leader in the fight against counterfeiting. As Director-General of IFPMA, he represented the research-based pharmaceutical industry and other manufacturers of prescription medicines, coordinating with the World Health Organization (WHO), the World Trade Organization (WTO) as well as other international organizations concerned with health and trade-related issues. As Director-General, he served as founding President of the Pharmaceutical Security Institute (PSI), an industry organization dedicated to combating counterfeiting. He was also a key collaborator in the establishment of the World Health Organization International Medical Products Anti-Counterfeiting Task Force (WHO IMPACT) and served as the first Chair of its Technology Subcommittee.

“Staying ahead of counterfeiters, while remaining cost-effective, presents a formidable brand protection challenge. Repackaging and the increasing sophistication of counterfeiters make clear that we cannot simply protect the package,” said Bale. “InfraTrac’s advanced, compact and highly mobile technology for protecting the product itself sets the company apart from others in this field, with the ability to protect generics and biologics as well.”

Dr Bale has prior experience with the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America as Senior Vice President for International Affairs, at Hewlett-Packard, and in the Office of the US Trade Representative, in trade negotiations and in the Camp David negotiations on the settlement of Israeli/Palestinian issues. In 1986 he received the Distinguished Service Award from US President Ronald Reagan, the highest award given to senior career government executives.
