New UK Registration Requirements for Online Medicine Retailers
Only one company can be named on each registration, but multiple websites can be registered against that company's registration. The MHRA's timeline for processing registration applications is 90 working days.
In the UK, registered pharmacies can sell general sales list and pharmacy ("over-the-counter") medicines or supply prescription-only medicines dispensed against a prescription online. All other retailers can only sell general sales list medicines online. In addition, the medicines being offered online must be licensed in the EU Member State where the consumer purchasing that medicine is based.
The aim of the new requirements is to help the public check whether the website they are visiting can legally sell medicines and reduce the risk of buying counterfeit products.
