LUXEMBOURG INITIATED PROJECT PRESENTED ON THE OCCASION OF ESA COUNCIL IN PARIS
Tracking and tracing of dangerous goods in the medical sector

Did you ever asked yourself what happens to your blood samples or other materials which are used in the medical sector? Most of these samples are transported via road to testing laboratories. Not many people know that a lot of these samples are dangerous goods, because they are potentially infectious. Other samples are very sensitive to temperature and need to be monitored. A new service, called DG-TRAC (Tracking & Tracing of Dangerous Goods in the Medical Sector), was set-up to increase the traceability and monitoring of medical goods during transport and thus to increase the quality of the transports as well as the safety on our roads.

On 3rd November 2016, the DG-TRAC project partners had the honour to demonstrate the service on the occasion of the ESA Council at delegate level in Paris, France. The Council is ESA's governing body and provides the basic policy guidelines within which ESA develops the European space programme.
