Falsified Medicines Directive

EDM number 1723 in 2017-19, proposed by Timothy Farron on 18/10/2018.

That this House notes that all pharmacies in the UK have until 9 February 2019 to implement the Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD) Delegate Regulation; condemns the Government's failure to adequately prepare pharmacies for the implementation of the directive; recognises the financial implications of this directive on small independent pharmacies; further notes that according to the software supplier FMD IT, only 1 per cent of the community pharmacies it has worked with to install the necessary software are independents; and calls on the Government to raise awareness of the obligations on pharmacies from the FMD and provide financial support for independent pharmacies that cannot meet the cost.

This motion has been signed by a total of 6 MPs.
