EU FALSIFIED MEDICINES DIRECTIVE INTRODUCES VERIFICATION SYSTEM FROM FEBRUARY

On 25th October, Loyens & Loeff published an article saying that the Falsified Medicines Directive 2011/62/EC has introduced a verification system which constitutes a key measure to fight falsification and protect the legal supply chain of medicines in the EU.  The system includes safety features and a repository which stores information on each individual pack of medicines.  The new rules will become applicable on 9th February in the EU and the EEA countries, from which date medicines on prescription (unless explicitly exempted) will have to carry the safety features consisting of a unique identifier and an anti-tampering device.
