With our end-to-end traceability solutions, OPTEL is currently helping pharmaceutical manufacturers, wholesalers and dispensers across Europe to ensure compliance with the European Union Falsified Medicines Directive (EU FMD).
In response to the alarming increase in substandard or counterfeit medications, the European Union adopted the FMD, or regulation (EU) 2016/161, on 2 October 2015, and subsequently published it on 9 February 2016. This legislation states that, by 9 February 2019, European hospitals and retail pharmacies will be required to decommission prescription medications using unique identifiers before distributing them to patients.
The road to compliance is short and difficult to navigate. As a leading provider of traceability systems since 1989, OPTEL can act as a trustworthy partner, supporting pharmacists and staff with guidance as well as effective, ready-to-use solutions to help you achieve compliance and much more.
