EPFIA has called for a ban on re-packaging, stricter rules on auditing and controls in the supply chain, and the application of penalties for trafficking in counterfeits.

European Commission is in consultation to decide what legislation mandates to order to reduce counterfeit drugs, including: batch pedigrees, obligatory product seals, mass serialisation, mandatory audits and tight requirements for distribution stakeholders.

MHRA; General Manager, Michael Deats, will explain how the group is implementing strategic and operational measures designed to minimise the risk of counterfeit medicines and medical devices reaching patients through both the regulates and unregulated supply chains.

PSC is the annual event that has been working with industry and international regulatory bodies for years to disseminate important information to the industry and to bring the right people together to discuss realistic measures to deter counterfeiting of medicines and secure the supply chain.
