New Safeguards for medicines via EU Medicines Directives
Posted on: February 18 2019, 07:19 pm

Thought this would be of interest for people...

The implementation of the Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD) safety feature requirements is a major milestone for patient safety in Europe.  The FMD system, operational as of 9th February 2019, aims to prevent falsified medicines from entering the legal supply chain which brings medicines to patients. The pharmaceutical industry invested over 1 billion euros for the new system.
For lower cost, but very essential medicines, it is imperative to engage in dialogue with national governments on how to sustain supplies in the future.
