Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD) Interface Pack

Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD) Interface Pack

Mysoft's FMD interface for Sage X3

On 9th February 2019 new regulations came into force covering the distribution of all prescription only medicines.

Manufacturers and parallel distributers are required to change their packaging to include an anti-tamper proof device, additional human readable information and include a 2-D barcode. In addition, they are required to upload the data into a Europe-wide database for verification and de-commissioning of medicine packs by end users.

Access to the European FMD database is controlled via the National Medicine Verification System (NMVS). Mysoft is a registered software supplier and has created an interface to allow verification and de-commissioning of medicine packs. The interface has successfully been deployed at a major pharmaceutical business in the UK.

The API’s (Application Programming Interface) included in the pack are as follows;
  1. Verify Single Pack
  2. Dispense Single Pack
  3. Undo Dispense Single Pack
  4. Bulk Verify Packs
  5. Bulk Dispense Packs
  6. NMVS Connection Test
There are numerous other API’s available which Mysoft has successfully tested in order for us to become an Authorised Supplier.

As with all Mysoft interfaces our Log Viewer is included to assist with auditing of transactions.

"The Falsified Medicines Directive is legislation passed by the European Union Parliament, which aims to increase the security of the manufacturing and delivery of medicines across Europe and protect patients and prevent falsified medicines from entering the supply chain."
