Design/Methodology/Approach: To actualize this study, the data was collected in the first stage (qualitative) from subject matter experts in counterfeit drugs and information technology in structured interviews, and the output was then used as an input into the development of a model that relates Blockchain distinctive features to counterfeit drugs, subject to statistical tests (quantitative).

In the second stage (quantitative), for testing the model, a questionnaire was used to collect data collection entailing the participation of 120 managers and supervisors of the Ministry of Health and Jordan Food and Drug Administration.

After confirming the normality, validity and reliability of the tool, descriptive analysis was carried out, and correlation between variables checked.

Finally, the impact was tested by multiple regressions.

Recommendations: The current study was conducted of a limited time of university semester, and the domain of the research was restricted specifically to the Jordanian pharmaceutical sector.

Therefore, it is only reasonable to recommend that future researches to collect more data over a longer time to check the current model validity and measuring instrument, and to consider carrying out similar studies on other industries in Jordan and/or same industry outside Jordan to test its results generalizability.

Originality/Value: This study may be considered as one of the pioneer studies to tackle the issue of controlling the level of counterfeit drugs in Jordan and investigate the impact of Blockchain distinctive features on the drugs counterfeiting.
