The EU Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD) requires that by February 9, 2019, pharmaceutical companies must serialise prescription medicines using a 2D barcode that contains the following information: product code, serial number, national reimbursement number (where required), batch number, and expiration date. This information must also be delivered in human readable text on the medicine’s package.
