Since 9th of February 2019 the Commission Delegated Regulation 2016/161 applies in the EU. With it the detailed rules for safety features on the packaging of medicinal products for human use are in place and need to be followed. Frequently updated Question and Answer documents have been published in addition to provide guidance. Moreover two Aide Memoires have been published in 2019:

Several months into the operational phase of the EU Verification System a significant number of manufacturers and supply chain actors have not yet connected to the System.

In addition, the Industry is still fighting with false alerts and most of the member states are still in stabilization phases. The EMVO report says that approximatively 1,5 - 3% of all scans undertaken by supply chain actors lead to false alerts being generated due to various reasons.

This Webinar will inform about the latest developments regarding the compliance with the Falsified Medicines Directive 2011/62/EU and its Delegated Regulation EU 2016/161.

Target Group

All actors of the supply chain (e.g. manufacturers, pharmacies, hospitals, wholesalers, dispensing doctors), as well as IT and engineering staff, responsible for the implementation or operation of the new systems are the target group of this event. The topics provided are also of interest for QA personnel dealing with alerts and complaints, QPs, suppliers of packaging (and authentication technology), and GMP/GDP Inspectors.
