The Falsified Medicines Directive (Directive 2011/62/EU) establishes solutions to combat counterfeit medicines. It is a key priority in the Medical and Pharmaceutical Sector as all pharmaceutical laboratories with prescription medicines must comply with the EU-FMD before the deadline of 9th February 2019.

On the 5th October we attended the ‘Are you ready for serialisation?’ conference organised by AECOC (in Madrid), where we participated in the roundtable to discuss the new regulations, inform manufacturers of the effect they will have and offer our different solutions. We were also present at the same event held in Barcelona on 18th October.

From the Martorelles plant in Barcelona, where the pharmaceutical manufacturing operations are carried out, they required a machine to code the medicines’ boxes: cardboard boxes with a layer of paint neither plastic coatings or special protections . In each case, according to current IMF regulations, a 2D identification code and four lines of text should be performed at a speed of 400 cases per minute and providing at the same time a high-resolution mark.
