Falsified Medicines Directive

New rules approved by the European Parliament will require safety features on the packaging of medicines at risk of falsification.

Counterfeit medicines represent an enormous public health challenge and the instances of falsified medicines in Europe are increasing at a dramatic rate. Medication represents the second largest category of falsified items imported into Europe today. The European Parliament and Council has approved and published a Delegated Regulation (EU2016/161) in the Official Journal of the European Union. This supplements the Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD) and introduces two mandatory safety features that will allow medicines to be verified and authenticated. 

These safety features are:

  • A unique identifier (a 2D data matrix code and human readable information) to be placed on medical products that can be scanned at fixed points along the supply chain
  • Tamper evident features on the pack

The delegated regulation comes into force in the UK in 2019. Marketing authorisation holders will be required to place the safety features on the packaging of medicines which fall within the remit of the delegated regulation no later than 9 February 2019.

Datalogic offers a wide range of scanners and mobile computers that can be used by pharmacies and hospitals to read the 2D codes on the packaging. Download the full White Paper.
