Since the beginning of the verification system, the authenticity of more than 300 million packages of medicine has been checked
In the first quarter of 2023, slightly more than 27 million checked packages reached the population. Since the start of the system’s operation in 2019, more than 300 million packages of medicines were checked in the system, according to data collected by the Latvian Medicines Verification Organisation (LZVO).
On April 20 and 21 of this year, the Latvian Medicines Verification Organisation (LZVO) in cooperation with Arvato Systems GmbH in Riga organized two-day working group seminars for Quality and IT Operations Managers of National Medicines Verification Organisations (NMVOs) to evaluate the achieved results and plan the further development of the medicines verification system.
The European Medicines Verification Organisation (EMVO) has launched a newsletter, which looks back on the past four years of the verification system’s operation, informs about the launch of the European Alert Management System (EAMS) and provides an opportunity to look into the first European Medicines Verification System’s (EMVS) forum, which was also attended by the Latvian Medicines Verification Organisation (LZVO) representatives Inese Erdmane and Andra Pučko.
