All organizations that manufacture, sell or dispense medicinal products in EU Member States have until February 9, 2019 to comply with the Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD). The FMD not only ensures that medicinal products distributed in the EU are safe, it will attempt to mitigate rising costs for supply chain organizations that are a result of different national or regional traceability requirements and authentication mechanisms. FMD requires that an end-to-end verification system is in place for an individual pack of a medicinal product for the entire time it’s in the market, as well as any time necessary for returning and disposing of the pack after it has expired. The legislation applies only to prescription medicines unless the product is considered at risk of counterfeiting.
