The UNICOM project is helping to ensure that any medicine and what it contains can be accurately identified anywhere in the world. We are working to improve patient safety and enable better healthcare for all.


The univocal identification of medicinal products is a global challenge. By going it alone, countries hinder the free flow of detailed, interoperable medicine information in the European Union, across the Atlantic, and globally. The UNICOM project joins forces with all stakeholders in our health systems to spearhead solving this challenge.
