Every health product registered with the National Pharmaceutical Regulatory Agency (NPRA) under the Ministry of Health Malaysia (MOH) has two key features: the registration number and hologram label.
A valid registration number begins with “MAL”, followed by 8-digit numbers and ends with an alphabet to indicate their registration category. The registration number needs to be printed on the label or packaging of the product.
The hologram security label was first introduced in 2005 with extensive safety features that can be verified by both consumers and pharmacy enforcement officers. Each registered product must display a hologram label on its packaging.
Farmatag is the new security label implemented on 1 September 2019. The authenticity of the Farmatag can be verified via a free app called FarmaChecker. Please note that VitaHealth products that are manufactured before the introduction of Farmatag are using the Meditag hologram security sticker. To check the authenticity of these products, please use the Meditag Checker.
