On November 27, 2013, President Obama signed into law the Drug Quality and Security Act (H.R. 3204). Title II of the Act, the Drug Supply Chain Security Act, establishes a national system for tracing pharmaceutical products through the supply chain and sets national licensing standards for wholesale distributors and third-party logistics providers.
