Hungary changes its law against counterfeit medicines

On January 1st, 2015, a major amendment to the Hungarian law 95 of 2005 on medicinal products for human use came into force – section 20/A called “temporary accessibility of electronic data.”

The amendment allows the National Institute for Quality and Organizational Development in Healthcare and Medicines to fight quicker and more efficiently against counterfeit medicines sold online. The Institute can then order the withdrawal of online content about counterfeit medicines and require the owner of the website to comply with the order within a maximum of 90 days.

A fine may be applied ranging from USD357 up to 10 times this amount.
