Implementation of the Falsified Medicines Directive in Belgium: from a linear (unique) barcode to a 2D datamatrix
The EU Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD) requires all European member states to have a system in place by February 2019 to prevent falsified medicines from entering the legal supply chain. One of the FMD requirements is the presence of a 2D data-carrier on the package, containing coded information such as a product ID and a unique serial number. The presentation will primarily focus on the correct application and implementation of this requirement in order to make the transition from the actual linear barcode (CNK or UBC) to a 2D datamatrix as smooth as possible for pharmacists, pharmaceutical industry and other stakeholders involved.
