Are you compliant with the Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD)? Test your knowledge. One of these medicines could harm your patient. Can you tell which one? The Directive 2011/62/EU introduces safety features such as a unique identifier and an anti-tampering device on the outer packaging of medicines. Which means pharmacies need to adapt to be able to check the compliance of any medicine they sell. But what does it mean in practice?
SCROLL DOWN FOR THE ANSWER
Falsified medicines can appear to be authentic and therefore be difficult to identify. Although the brown bottle looks correct it is missing an anti-tampering device and it is out of date, having expired Nov 30 2017. Compliance with FMD regulation will enable pharmacies to improve their stock management processes and prevent falsified medicines from entering the supply chain. Zebra scanning technology helps pharmacies to achieve compliance by enabling them to scan, record manage and verify all medications they hold on stock and dispense to patients.
