In 2014 the SFDA saw a need to develop a drug track-and-trace system. Once most of the products in the supply chain were trackable, the SFDA launched a test version of the RSD system at the beginning of 2018. The SFDA proceeded to collect feedback on the system from users so any necessary adjustments could be made. The completed system was launched at the end of 2018 and stakeholders started using it at the beginning of 2019.
More than 6000 stakeholders were registered on the RSD system between January 2019 and the end of 2021. The SFDA continues to register new stakeholders on a daily basis. Since its launch, the system has proved effective, having recorded more than 3bn operation transactions and recalled 15m boxes of medication as of end-2021.
