The international Institute of Research Against Counterfeit Medicine (IRACM) and the National Anti-Counterfeiting Committee (CNAC) presented a conference - debate on 20 June 2016 in Paris entitled "The Counterfeiting of Medicines in France: Myth or Reality". Numerous international experts participated in the event, held in the presence of Senator Richard Yung and French Ambassador Jean-David Levitte, also President of the Board of Directors of IRACM.

Three round tables were held to examine drug counterfeiting in France, in Europe and in the world. They shed light on obstacles and bottlenecks that have hampered the battle against medical counterfeiting over the past ten years. A significant advancement toward resolving these issues is the Medicrime Convention, but this latter is still awaiting implementation.
