Falsified Medicines Directive, Substandard Medicines and Quality Deficiencies.

– What is the difference between a falsified medicine and a quality deficiency?

– Can the EMVS be used to ensure quality in the entire supply chain?

– Could the system in addition to the initial purpose be used to simplify the supply chain and increase quality?

The European Medicinces Verification System (EMVS) has been up and running since 2019 when the FMD became effective. The digital development provides for more data available in the supply chain, which brings both challenges and opportunities.

Kristina von Sydow will share learnings and experiences from the Swedish national organisation, provide an update on current developments at the Nordic and European level, as well give a perspective on what could be seen in the future for the verification system.
