Stefan Artlich

Director and Global Process Owner 'Track & Trace' - Bayer

Being a mathematician and chemical engineer by profession Stefan is involved in pharmaceutical serialization since its early days in 2008 and renowned as one of the fathers of the European ‘Point-of-Dispense Verification’ model that ensures patients’ access to safe medicines. For more than seven years Stefan worked as a delegate consultant for EFPIA, the European association of the research-based biopharmaceutical industry, where he contributed to the successful verification pilot in Sweden in 2009 / 2010 and played a key role in the design and development of the European Medicines Verification System (EMVS) that constitutes a key component in the implementation of the EU Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD). Once having returned from Brussels Stefan led Bayer’s activities to implement the Brazilian Track&Trace requirements in 2014 and 2015 before his focus shifted back to the roots as the responsible program manager for the timely FMD readiness of Bayer’s Pharmaceuticals and Consumer Health divisions by February 2019. In 2021, Stefan got assigned responsibility as Global Process Owner ‘Track&Trace at Bayer’ and in addition continues to manage Track&Trace country rollouts for Bayer. Beyond his project assignments Stefan Artlich engages on a strategic level for supply chain improvements ensuring patients’ safety and uninterrupted access to medicines. Current ‘hot topics’ include barcoding of products on the single unit primary packaging level and entering into the journey of accessing electronic product information via barcode scanning.
