The Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD) is required to start on the 9th February 2019. Over the coming weeks and months, we will be communicating with you on how the implementation is progressing and what you need to do.

The first step, if you haven’t already done so, is to read, “The Way Forward for Community Pharmacy” document on the FMD Source site. This covers the key assumptions about FMD, high level processes for incorporating the required additions to existing dispensing workflow, what IT systems need to deliver and the implications for patient safety.
