Bulgarian Medicines Verification Organisation (BgMVO) was established on 14 March 2016 in Sofia as a non-profit association to support the implementation in Bulgaria of Directive 2011/62/EU for preventing entry of falsified medicinal products into the legal supply chain.

The founders of the BgMVO are five organisations representing the stakeholders involved in the manufacturing and distribution of medicines – Association of the Research-based Pharmaceutical Manufacturers in Bulgaria, Bulgarian Generic Pharmaceutical Association, Bulgarian Association of Medicines Parallel Trade Development, Bulgarian Association of Pharmaceutical Wholesalers and Bulgarian Pharmaceutical Union.

The main purpose of the BgMVO is to ensure that patients are supplied with authentic medicinal products by building, operating and maintaining an effective drug verification system in the Republic of Bulgaria. BgMVO works in close collaboration with Healthcare authorities in Bulgaria.
