Online pharmacies must display new logo to show they are operating legally

From 1 July 2015, all online pharmacies or online shop selling medicines in the EU must display a new logo to show they are operating legally. This logo was introduced by the Falsified Medicines Directive (2011/62/EU) to protect patients from falsified medicines – fake medicines designed to look like real, authorised medicines. Falsified medicines might contain ingredients which are of bad quality or in the wrong dose, or they might contain no active ingredients at all.

  • Thankyou very much for this Emma I would hate to think that any of us receive dodgy medications but we can never be too careful can we, the damage that dodgy meds can do can be really nasty in some cases.

    Fluffies and healing smiles for you :)
