Pursuant to the provisions of the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/161, at the point of dispense the medicine will be scanned, checked and verified for authenticity against a national (or EU) repository. If the UI on the pack matches the information in the repository, the pack is decommissioned and supplied to the patient. Otherwise, if there is a warning related to this pack, then the system will highlight this as an exceptional event and the package will not be supplied to the patient. An investigation needs to determine whether the pack has been falsified or not.

Please find detailed information regarding alert handling in the Guidelines for EMVO and NMVO stakeholders.
