The MHRA is no longer processing new applications for the medicines Distance Selling Logo in Great Britain and will be considering an alternative to the use of the logo in the future.
To sell medicines in the EU, EU-based online sellers must register, with the competent authority of the country in which they are based and display an EU common logo
After January 1 online medicines sellers based in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland) will no longer be required to display the EU common logo.
Because of the Northern Ireland Protocol, anyone in Northern Ireland selling medicines to the public via a website must still comply with the requirement to apply the EU common logo. This means they must be registered with the MHRA and display a Distance Selling Logo on every page of their website.
