Will manufacturers and wholesalers be able to see data on products I have dispensed?

< Back

No. The Delegated Regulation is clear that all parties that are connected to the repositories system, including manufacturers, wholesalers and pharmacies, have sole responsibility, ownership and access to any data that they generate. This data is not shared with any other parties, other than the National Competent Authority, where necessary.

The only exception is the status (“active”/“inactive”) of products’ UIs, which is available to any party that has a relevant pack in their possession.

Each national medicines verification system will maintain an audit trail of when and where product information was uploaded and access, and where and when UIs are decommissioned. This data cannot be shared with other parties, other than with the express written permission of the data owner. The only exception is when there is an investigation into an incident of potential falsification.
