The MEDICRIME Convention


The Medicrime Convention is the only international legal instrument that has made it a criminal offence to produce and distribute fake medical products or commit similar crimes. Developed by the Council of Europe to protect public health, the Convention was adopted on 8 December 2010. It provides for the enforcement of effective, fitting and dissuasive sanctions to punish the production and trafficking of fake medical products, at both the national and international level.
