Coding and Serialisation of Medicinal Products

The Mission of AMVS

On behalf of AMVO AMVS GmbH runs a data repository which records all medicinal products supposed to prescription, that are placed on the Austrian market.

Each pack of a medicinal products can be clearly identified. This is to ensure that no falsified medicinal products can enter into the legal supply chain.

The EU falsified medicines directive foresees measures against the entering of falsified medicinal products into the legal supply chain.

These measures include the placing of safety features consisting of:

  • an unique identifier (2D datamatrix code)
  • a device against tampering of the outer package
