New logo makes online medicine sales safer

Added: Thursday 16 July 2015

The European Union has introduced a logo as part of the fight against falsified medicines being sold online. All medicine retailers who are registered with the regulatory authority for their country will display the logo on their website. Clicking on the logo will take you to the website of the regulatory authority; specifically, the list of registered medicine retailers. This allows the potential buyer to see if the website they are about to buy from is listed.
