Meeting FMD Requirements Modular and in Real-time
Arvato Systems Supports Wholesaler with Becoming FMD Compliant
On 9 February 2019, it came into full force – the "Falsified Medicines Directive" (FMD), the EU directive on the protection of medicinal products against counterfeiting. Arvato Systems is supporting Yusen Logistics, a global logistics service provider with strong presence in Healthcare, as it updates its business processes to meet the requirements of the new directive. The FMD directive is a transformation for all institutions active in the pharmaceutical industry that enables participants in the supply chain – including pharmaceutical wholesalers – to check the authenticity of products.
Arvato proved to be a knowledgeable partner in the field of serialization and the Falsified Medicines Directive. There was a good cooperation between both companies to set up an efficient and compliant solution, which would work for both parties and our customers.
