Pharmacies selling medicines legally online

29 July 2015, Updated 22 May 2019

Websites in EU/EEA countries legally selling medicines to the public over the internet must display a new logo as from 1 July 2015. This applies to pharmacies and authorised retailers.

The purpose of the logo is to help consumers identify websites that can sell medicines legally. The logo will contribute to prevent that falsified medicines enter the legal supply chain.

It is easy to verify whether you can trust a website:

  • Look for the logo when you visit a website that sells medicines online.
  • When you click the logo, check that you are redirected to one of our lists of pharmacies or authorised retailers.
  • Check the list to verify that the distributor and website are registered. A pharmacy/retailer is registered on the list, because they have informed the Danish Medicines Agency that they sell medicines online. Pharmacies have a licence and retailers have an authorisation issued by the Danish Medicines Agency, which entitle them to sell medicine to the public.
  • If the pharmacy/retailer is registered on the list, it is safe to complete your purchase of medicine on the website. Do not buy medicines from websites that do not display the new logo.
