Performance indicators of the Latvian Medicines Verification System

February 9, 2024, will mark 5 years since operations of a medicine verification system began across Europe and Latvia. The system’s purpose is to ensure that all people receive only safe medicines, eliminating the possibility of counterfeit drugs reaching patients through legal supply chains. Over time, the number of checked and decommissioned medicine packages in the Latvian Medicine Verification System (Latvijas zāļu verifikācijas sistēma – LZVS) has gradually increased, the proportion of alerts has decreased, and the LZVS end user registration system has been fully sorted.
