Legislation: European Commission introduces a new logo to protect consumers from fake medicines for online pharmacies

June 25th 2015 - www.europa.eu

The Falsified Medicines Directive 2011/62/EU introduced a new logo to protect patients from fake medicines. Since the 1st July 2015, all online pharmacies or retailers of medicines, legally operating, display the new logo. The logo has a specific verification process to ensure maximum protection: when clicking on the logo, online shoppers should be taken to the national regulatory authority website which lists all legally operating pharmacies and retailers of medicines in a Member State.
