National Health Registration Number (AMPP) – Mandatory for the UK

The National Health Registration Number (NHRN) field will be enforced for upload of Product Master Data to the UK MVS from Q4 2019 via a technical change to the EU Hub. From that time, Onboarding Partners (OBP) will be required to upload the NHRN (AMPP) in the Master Data for products marketed in the UK.

MAHs and their respective OBPs should begin to prepare for the change.

For accurate, fast and reliable updating of licensed medicines on dm+d, many companies prefer to use the eMC ‘In Demand’ portal (owned by DataPharm).

Alternatively, you can choose to liaise with the NHSBSA MEDS Data Team by Email: or telephone: +44(0)191 203 5289.

Further guidance notes and instructions can be found in the Technical Bulletin.
