With the European Directive 2011,/62, the government approved new regulations for selling drugs online, and a new decree on counterfeiting, responsible for defining the new rules to prevent counterfeit medicines. Among the changes resulting from the adoption of this decree is the establishment of a register for the pharmaceutical industry, accredited by the Ministry of Health. This register will record traffic to ensure any liability for irregularities. The measure also amends the current marking of packages that will be replaced by a new anti-counterfeiting system.
