False Medicines Directive
In 2011 the European Commission passed the Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD), requiring the implementation of safety features to avoid falsified medicines being dispensed to patients. This came into effect in February 2019 and all prescription medicines must now be scanned by the pharmacist at the point of dispensing.
Pharmacists can report a suspected Falsified Medicine by phoning MSD Ireland at 01 299 8700.
If you have any additional queries or require any further information please contact the Irish Medicines Verification Organisation directly on their website at imvo.ie
