Counterfeit Drugs

As part of our mission to help patients prevail against serious diseases, Bristol-Myers Squibb is committed to ensuring the safety and integrity of our products. This includes working with our global supply chain to identify and reduce the opportunity for counterfeit drugs.
Our goal is to eliminate product tampering, theft or diversion so that we can always provide our customers with safe, effective, high-quality products.
Counterfeit drugs and product tampering, theft or diversion represent a threat to providing our customers with the safest, most effective and highest quality products.

While there is no single solution to this issue, we have efforts in place to help ensure the integrity of our products within the supply chain and further patient safety:

  • An integrated team that addresses counterfeiting, product tampering, theft and diversion issues
  • Security technologies to make our packaging and products less vulnerable to counterfeiting and to secure their movement within the supply chain
  • Participation in industry coalitions and organizations addressing this issue
  • Collaboration with supply chain vendors and law enforcement agencies on product security matters
