Balkan Pharmaceuticals product protection means

Unfortunately, in addition to medicines certified and admitted to production and distribution, counterfeit medicines sometimes appear on the market. These can affect patients, not having the effect of the original product and damaging the reputation of the producing company.

Balkan Pharmaceuticals takes care of consumers and regularly develops various means of protecting its products, which ensures patient safety and trust.

Sophisticated packaging, with many elements of identity, visual and tactile makes it difficult, if not impossible to counterfeit our products.

Our first method against piracy, is the Online Product Verification System – UPIC. This mode of protection is applied to medicines for which counterfeiting has been reported. Authenticity of the product can be checked on the UPIC site. Based on this code, the customer can find product information, such as name, batch number, production date and term of validity of the product.

By entering your drug code in the online form on the UPIC website, one can learn about how many times the page was accessed. This detail can be considered as an index of product authenticity. Since each box has a unique number, the codes checked too often are identified as suspicious by the system. Too many checks on a product indicate that the product is counterfeit.

The most recent (2018) method of protection against counterfeit products is the customized hologram used on the packaging of every product for which counterfeiting has been reported. The holograms are complex images, made up of a compilation of unique elements.

Holograms on the packaging of tablets will be marked with the word „TABLETS”, while those on the packaging of ampoules, with the inscription „INJECTABLES”.

Balkan Pharmaceuticals is continuously working on maintaining the high quality of its products and to protect consumers from counterfeit and is urging you to pay close attention to the distinctive elements of the original products made by Balkan Pharmaceuticals.
