In late March, as part of its anti-counterfeiting activities, EDQM announced the launch of a new database called “Know-X.” The database collates reports on counterfeit/falsified medical products that have been detected in European member states, and also contains details on closed cases of counterfeit/falsified medical products, technical information on the testing performed, the authorities involved, and what actions were taken. The information provided is gathered from various sources and is intended to provide governments with decision aids for the management and prevention of specific risks.
