Each pack is unique
Counterfeit medicines are a risk to patient health. They are a global problem, even in countries where distribution systems are supposedly safe. To safeguard medicines against manipulation, Directive 2011/62/EU foresees additional measures which are designed to increase the transparency of distribution pathways as well as enhance drug safety. We are already fully prepared for these challenges in the human pharmaceutical market and have implemented the national requirements with respect to our medicinal products by labelling every pack with a globally unique product code plus dedicated serial number, along with a tamper-proof seal.
