Over the past few months it has emerged that the original compliance deadline of January 2016 has been pushed back to 2018. Wrestling with the technical and logistical challenges of implementation, those on the production floor could be forgiven for losing sight of the bigger picture, which is the need to safeguard patients and consumers against the danger posed by illicit medicines. 

The European Generics Association estimates that it will cost the pharmaceutical sector more than €5bn to convert all its packaging lines to full FMD compliance.
