Pharmacies: Norway joins in on the pan European logo for online sales of medicines

Since 2015, there has been an EU requirement that websites and apps selling medicines shall have a visible logo to show for legitimate and authorised operations. As from April 2, 2018 this requirement also applies for Norwegian online- and app based pharmacies. The Norwegian Medicines Agency (NOMA) is responsible for implementing the logo in Norway. Before using the logo, the acting entity must be approved by- and registered with- and also enter into a license agreement with NOMA. The logo provides for a link to NOMA’s list of pharmacies authorised to sell medicines over the internet.
