DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Authentix, the global leaders in authentication, and L’Oreal USA, a division of the world's largest cosmetics and beauty company, will deliver a presentation on best practices for product traceability and the prevention of product counterfeiting, theft and diversion at the 7th Annual Global Forum on Pharmaceutical Anticounterfeiting and Diversion. The event, hosted by Reconnaissance International, is to be held November 27-29, 2012, in Washington, D.C.
The presentation, entitled “Best Practices and Lessons Learned from Deploying a Successful Traceability Program in the Consumer Goods Industry,” will help address the knowledge gap that exists when it comes to making a track and trace program operationally successful.
