Medicines online sale is opened in Luxembourg

The 1st online pharmacy in Luxembourg is the pharmacie de Steinfort.

In Luxembourg, the Pharmacie de Steinfort has succeeded in launching into online sale of medical devices and cosmetics previously prohibited by the 1975 Act.

To this law, Sylvaine Haufroid, Pharmacist in Pharmacie de Steinfort, had opposed the European directive dated June 8, 2011 authorizing the sale of medicines on the Internet, with or without restrictions on the willingness of states.

The Department of Health has finally delivered an agreement at the Pharmacie de Steinfort to start its online medicines business. The only drugs currently approved are drugs without prescription as it is already the case in France or in Belgium.

A change in the law should follow.
