2018 EU Falsified Medicines Directive

10th May 2018

2018 EU Falsified Medicines Directive

Is your business prepared for the 2018 EU Falsified Medicines Directive?

To combat the global threat of counterfeit medicines, authorities around the world are tightening up the supply chain with new regulations designed to try and stamp out these illicit goods. The solution involves using 2D barcode labels and intelligent software to keep track of all items moving through the pharmaceutical industry.

The unique identifier will need to contain the product code, batch number and expiry date as well as its serial number to uniquely identify the pack. This data will also need to be contained in a 2D barcode which can be scanned and tracked throughout the supply chain.

So if you are a pharmaceutical manufacturer, distributor or pharmacy there will be a requirement to record, capture and share this information.

What are the implications for my business?
