Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD)

Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD) becomes law on the 9th Feb 2019

In preparation for this, the Community Pharmacy Working Group have produced a document “The Way Forward for FMD in Community Pharmacy”.

This contains detail of the overall process for the implementation and operation of FMD in Community Pharmacies, and it is therefore important that pharmacy teams read and understand the details.

FMD Consultation

The FMD Consultation is now live. There will be an opportunity for community pharmacies to submit responses to the proposals. The CPS Board will agree and submit a response in mid-August, which we will share with you on our website and in the newsletter.

If you have any questions or feedback, please contact Amanda.

What training will there be?

There will be training programmes, both face to face and online, later in the year where there will be opportunities to ask questions and learn more about FMD.

Who should I contact for further support?

If you have any questions or need further support, please get in touch with Amanda.
