EU beweegt richting gebruik van QR-codes op farmaverpakking

04 juli 2017

According to a recent position paper, Europe’s Heads of Medicines Agencies’ Co-ordination group for Mutual recognition and Decentralised procedures – human (CMDh) says the 2D codes that can be scanned by a smartphone could be useful as a means to provide product information for both prescription and over-the-counter medicines.
The group says QR codes are not mandatory but any inclusion of a QR code would be automatically accepted by all Member States “without any further assessment”. The intention of including a QR code would have to be declared in marketing authorization applications, the details of which the CMDh outlines in the position paper (AIPIA News, 20 juni 2017).
