The National Medicines Verification System (NMVS) acts as a verification platform for Romania, through which pharmacies or other stakeholders, such as wholesalers can verify a product’s authenticity. OSMR is responsible for implementing and managing the NMVS, which is part of the European Medicines Verification System (EMVS).

The producers upload the unique identifiers to the European Hub and the medicines verification process will take place within the National Medicines Verification System. Global technical and quality standards such as system interoperability, ownership and data access have been agreed upon by stakeholders based on mutually agreed principles, compatible with the requirements of the Directive 2011/62/EU.

The products covered by the Directive are, generally all prescription products , with a few exceptions, as specified in the Delegated Regulation (UE) 2016/161. While non-prescription products are largely out of scope, there are a few exceptions that are defined by the national competent authorities.
