Association Latvian Medicines Verification Organisation (LZVO) was founded in December 2016 to create, maintain and supervise the Latvian Medicines Verification System according to the requirements of the European Medicines Verification System, the Falsified Medicines Directive and the Delegated Regulation for the representatives of the pharmaceutical industry. The establishment of LZVO is mandated by EU law. The founders of the association are the professional associations of the industry that represent the manufacturers of medicines, wholesalers, pharmacies and other relevant parties. The LZVO cooperates with all the entities, representative offices and institutions that are involved in the manufacturing and distribution of medicines in Latvia and Europe.
