PROJECT ACTIONS AND TIMELINE FOR THE DISTRIBUTION STAKEHOLDERS

Very soon, if not yet already now, FMD compliant packs with the 2D matrix will appear on the market. It is extremely important to start in time with the implementation for all stakeholders.

The main steps in the implementation of the connection to the supra-national Belgo-Luxembourg Medicines Verification System (BLMVS) are:

Technical connection

  • Contact your technical partner: internal department or external software vendor
  • The technical partner needs to register to the Arvato technical portal and obtain the technical documentation
  • Technical partner to develop the business rules and connection functionality
  • Establish connection to the system and test developed routines
  • Run tests with Pilot participants
  • Receive sign off on tests
  • Technical partner to roll out the solution to all clients
