The first medicine pack scanned in NMVS PROD environment
On November 5th 2018, the scanning of the first medicine pack in the NMVS PROD environment was carried out in Romania by Europharm Holding SA, authorized wholesaler.
The Implementation of the National Medicines Verification System (NMVS) has reached an important milestone through the first real operation in the NMVS PROD which validates the OSMR procedures and the End Users’ registration and access processes.
The serialized medicine that was scanned is manufactured by Janssen Pharmaceutica NV. From the respective medicine, 2 serialized packs have been checked for authentification:
The confirmation in NMVS PROD can be seen below:
Europharm Holding SA is the first company to run through the stages related to the setting up of accounts, defining End User Locations and Technical Connecting Points in the OSMR SIMI (Registration and Incident Management System) and NMVS IQE systems and conducting test in the IQE environment.
On October 17th, 2018, Europharm Holding SA started the registration process for NMVS access and benefited from support and technical assistance from its software providers: TOTALSOFT SA from Romania and Movilitas Belgium BVBA, each providing the local software for one of the 2 End User locations used, defined according to procedures GLN LUF 59404772xxxxx and GLN LUF2 59404772xxxxx, each one having a Technical Connecting Point assigned to it: GLN TCP1: 59404772xxxxx and GLN TCP2: 59404772 xxxxx.
In the registration processes for NMVS access, based on the validated procedures within the national implementation project, internally by OSMR and externally by EMVO, initiated with the start of the PILOT Phase and the Go-Live of the NMVS PROD on August 30th, 2018, 46 software companies and 745 clients of the respective companies, future NMVS End Users are enrolled at this moment.
Initiating the registration process is preferably done by notifying the End User in the OSMR Registration and Incident Management System (OSMR SIMI) by the software company serving the respective company. As of October 15th, 2018, there is also the option for the End User to register directly, should that be the case, independently of the software company notification (https://osmr.ro/acces-direct-al-utilizatorilor-finali-la-snvm/?lang=en).

We would like to congratulate Europharm Holding SA wholesaler and the companies providing the software applications in its logistic warehouses involved in successfully completing this important milestone of the national implementation project!
