EU Directive 2011/62/EU on Falsified Medicines applying as of 9th. February 2019, basically imposes the requirement for all prescription medicines to have the same security arrangements. This is achieved by way of sealed packs and pack-specific barcodes. This makes it possible to verify products' genuineness.
Every national IT system is linked to the European hub which contains data on all products.

In order for the verification system to work, all manufacturers and parallel importers must upload their product data to European system, EMVS. All marketing authorisation holders on the Danish market have to sign an agreement with DMVO.
The aim of the Pan-European verification system is to enhance patient safety. The genuineness of each individual pack must be checked before being dispensed to the patient.
