The Falsified Medicines Directive is designed to protect patients by minimising counterfeit medicines entering the established medicines supply chain across Europe. The FMD is due to be rolled out from 9th February 2019 and will implement a system to track legitimate medicines from manufacturers to patients. Manufacturers will be obliged to apply safety features to each pack: a tamper-proof security seal and a 2D barcode. The barcode enables each pack to be serialised with a unique randomised number, which will be authenticated before dispensing. This identification data will be stored in a database managed by the European Medicines Verification Organisation (EMVO), and supported at national level in the UK by the UK Medicines Verification Organisation (UKMVO) also known as SecurMed.
Every single Manufacturer (MAH), Importer/Exporter, Wholesaler, Hospital, GP, Pharmacy and Dispenser within the supply chain across Europe must be compliant and on-board with FMD during February 2019. This is a dramatic new requirement which needs significant change to the business and IT process flows. Our SaaS and PaaS model are based on support and integration without huge expense for these trade partners.
