All set for early 2019, the Delegated Act on safety features for the European Union (EU) Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD) has pharmaceutical companies, parallel importers, wholesalers, and pharmacies facing a close-fitting timeline to address extensive serialisation, compliance reporting, and verification requirements. The Delegated Act includes several unexpected rules that add complexity to FMD planning and preparation. Many supply chain companies have raised questions related to the impending Delegated Act requirements and we could find answers for all of them at our conference.

This conference overviews and integrates the business and technical problems that pharmaceutical companies should be aware of in order to fight the major global problem of counterfeit medicines. In addition to discussion of the problems, this conference addresses serialisation, track and trace analytical techniques scientists use to detect counterfeits and identifying solutions to the threat of counterfeit medical products. It gives us immense pleasure in welcoming you to “7th Annual Pharma Anti-Counterfeiting & Serialisation 2018 – “Competences to Combat Counterfeits”
