The infiltration of falsified medicines in the European legal supply chain is a major and continuous threat for the patient health and security, and the reason why a comprehensive protective strategy was established at European level. A joint initiative of EU stakeholders in the pharmaceutical sector was created to establish pan-european Medicines Verification System to protect the legal medicines supply chain from the entry of falsified medicines.

The system, which was set up on February 9, 2019, has been intricately technically designed and regulated by EU legislation.
