Taking the complication out of FMD compliance 

Easily scan, verify, decommission and recommission medicines using any device that’s connected to the internet with FMD Authenticator. Our internet-based application is perfect for hospital pharmacies and both dispensing and non-dispensing GP practices who need to comply with the Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD).

The FMD comes into effect from 9 February 2019learn more about the legislation and if your organisation needs to be compliant here.

How FMD Authenticator helps you to ensure patients receive safe medicines:

  • every item you scan is automatically checked against the register within the National Medicines Verification Server (NMVS)
  • this ensures medicines are safe – including making sure that they’re of the right strength, quality and efficacy
  • the NMVS tells you the status of the item and if it can be decommissioned
  • if it can’t be decommissioned, you can destroy the product and send it back to the manufacturer.

Supporting all your staff to work more effectively

  • Easy to access: anyone who has a device that connects to the internet can use our system. 
  • Better understand your logistics: gain full transparency of the movement of medicines through your organisation. 
  • Keeping you covered: manually add data to the system - including expiry dates and serial, batch and global trade information item (GTIN) numbers - if you're unable to scan. 

Reduce medicines wastage and save money in the process

FMD Authenticator also gives you the option to recommission medicines if the anti-tampering device (ATD) is still intact. Plus, you’ve got the option to ‘undo’ if you’ve accidentally scanned the wrong item.

With more control over your medicines, you can help to tackle the £300 million that’s spent annually on medicines wastage. It could even mean that your organisation ends up saving a bit of cash too.
