It is the course’s goal to inform about the latest developments regarding the compliance with the Falsified Medicines Directive 2011/62/EU and its Delegated Regulation EU 2016/161. Best practice examples will demonstrate how the requirements on verification of the authenticity of each single medicinal product can be fulfilled and false alerts can be managed efficiently. In addition, global aspects, like aggregation and the different types of coding will be covered.


Since 9th of February 2019 the Commission Delegated Regulation applies. With it the detailed rules for safety features on the packaging of medicinal products for human use are in place and need to be followed. Frequently updated Question and Answer documents have been published in addition to provide guidance. Moreover two Aide Memoires have been published in 2019:
More than two years in the operational phase of the EU Verification System a significant number of manufacturers and supply chain actors have not yet connected to the system. Data provided by the European Medicines Verification Organisation (EMVO) estimate that 40% of (theoretical) manufacturers as well as 25% of other supply chain actors (e.g. pharmacies, hospitals, wholesalers, dispensing doctors) have not yet connected to the medicines verification system.

In addition, the Industry is still fighting with false alerts and most of the member states are still in stabilization phases. The EMVO report says that approximatively 1,5 - 3% of all scans undertaken by supply chain actors lead to false alerts being generated due to various reasons, such as:
  • Missing data upload into the European Hub,
  • Incorrect data upload,
  • Incorrect scanner configuration of end-users,
  • Pharmacy / hospital software systems not updated,
  • Procedural reasons,
  • System not used properly.
This Live Online Training Course will support you in collecting, sorting and proper understanding of the relevant requirements related to the defined safety features..
Practical examples will be presented and further discussed in corresponding Q&A sessions during this Live Online Training Course dealing with questions like:
  • What are the challenges of the EU delegated regulation for  safety features  the supply chain actors are currently facing?
  • What are the weak points of the current End-to-End verification System?
  • Will aggregation soon be required in the EU?
  • What are the requirements regarding serialization / aggregation on a global level?
  • How to deal with the different global requirements in practice?
  • How could a best practice process of suspected falsified medicines handling may look like?
  • Do we need a new alert management system or will we use established quality systems?
  • What to do if a real falsification is the most likely conclusion?

Target Group

Executive and operational managers of all actors of the supply chain (e.g. manufacturers, pharmacies, hospitals, wholesalers, dispensing doctors), as well as IT and engineering staff, responsible for the implementation or operation of the new systems are the target group of this event.

The topics provided are also of interest for QA personnel dealing with alerts and complaints, QPs, suppliers of packaging (and authentication technology), and GMP/GDP Inspectors.

Technical Requirements

For our Live Online Training Courses and Webinars, we use Cisco WebEx, one of the leading suppliers of online meetings. At you can check if your system meets the necessary requirements for the participation at a WebEx meeting and at thesame time install the necessary plug-in. Please just enter your name and email address for the test. If the installation is not possible because of your rights for the computer system, please contact your IT department. WebEx is a standard nowadays and the necessary installation is fast and easy.
