Recommendation on theft of medicines

The CD-P-PH/CMED committee is working on a new project that will cover issues related to the theft, loss and diversion of medicines from the legal supply chain from a public health angle; the criminal law aspects will be outside its scope. The goal of this project is to draft a Committee of Ministers recommendation to member states in order to involve health authorities at an early stage by obliging stakeholders to report thefts, losses or diversions of medicines to them; to provide guidance on how authorities should deal with the information they receive and the follow-up action to be taken; and to promote international co-operation.
