Check if a website can legally sell medicines online

Search the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) register to check if a website is allowed to sell medicines. 

All websites that sell medicines must display the Distance Selling Logo (external link)

You can search the register by the business:

Before you start  

You can also report a website (external link) to MHRA if:
