End User Registration
Registration Now Open
This page contains important information to help you progress smoothly with your Registration to the SecurMed UKMVS. The system is funded by the pharmaceutical manufacturers and parallel distributors (MAHs). Community pharmacy, hospital pharmacy, wholesalers, in-/out-patient clinics and GP/Health Centres are not required to fund the system or pay for any licenses to use the UK Medicines Verification system.
Please read all of this page before proceeding.
Click here to download the End User Licence Agreement. Please read this carefully before accessing or using the UKMVS in any manner.
- Requestor – The person who can Register End User Locations
- End User Location – The Name of Legal Entity and Address Location from which medicines are dispensed
- End User Location Contact – The person authorised to dispense medicines from that location and receive the logon access credentials
- End User Location Function – The principle function of the dispensing location (e.g. Pharmacy, Dispensing Surgery, Wholesaler)
NOTE: Health Centres should select GP Practice from the available drop down options
- Software Supplier – The vendor of the software you will use to access the UKMVS
- User Name and Password – The login credentials required to access the UKMVS
- Software Certificate – A small piece of code which works in unison with the User Name and Password to verify the End User Location to the UKMVS. Depending on your IT setup this may be installed on all terminals or computers within the End User Location or may be installed on a central server through which all dispensing transactions are routed from the terminals or computers in the location.
- Single Registration – Registration of a Single End User Location for a single Function. An End User Location which has more than a single function will require a Single Registration for each function at the same location
- Bulk Registrations – Registration of multiple End User Locations within the same Parent Company or Group at the same time.

|Determine that you need to connect to UK NMVS||Please consult your competent authority if in doubt e.g. FMD.firstname.lastname@example.org|
|Select a software provider and ensure readiness to connect to UK MVS||The system uses locations not people to define access. UK post codes are used to define locations as registered on appropriate registration databases e.g. GPhC, CQC, EudraGDMP|
|Decide whether you are registering one or many locations||The system uses locations not people to define access. UK post codes are used to define locations as registered on appropriate registration databases e.g. GPhC, CQC, EudraGDMP|

|Access credentials will be sent to you by two separate communications||Once the request is verified, access credentials will be sent back via email and via postal mail in 10 to 15 days. The content of both will need to be used in conjunction to validate connection.|
The first step for registration is to create an account for your Requestor role.
The Requestor should register the End User Location, an End User Location Contact and a Software Supplier. As the Requestor you will be able to save progress and return later if required or register more End User Locations.
You will need to register a person as an End User Location Contact for your Location, however in the UK, it is the End User Location which will be the recognised ‘End User’ of the UKMVS. This means you do NOT need to register every person as a User within your Location.
We recommend that if you have up to five End User Locations to register that you complete a Single registration for each, as this may be easier and as fast as downloading and uploading a multi-user registration form.
If your End User Location performs more than one function, for example a Pharmacy and a Wholesaler, you will need to register each function separately as individual End User Locations.
Before you start, you will need to have the following information available:
- Name of Legal Entity and Address for the End User Location
- End User Location Function(s)
- Registration Body for the Location and Registration ID
- Name, Email and Business Phone for the End User Location Contact
- Your Software Supplier Name, Software Name and Version
If you do not have all the information at this time, you will be able to save progress and come back later to complete the registration. Registration cannot be completed before all the required information is provided.
If you have not yet chosen a Software Supplier, you can select one from this page: Software Supplier List, and arrange to contract directly with them. This is not a definitive list of Software Suppliers, others may be available.
SecurMed UK are not affiliated with any Software Suppliers and do not recommend any particular company. It is your responsibility to select and contract with the Software Supplier most suited to your needs.
If you are registering on behalf of an End User Location, you will also need to ensure that you are warranted to accept the End User Licence Agreement (EULA) by a suitable authority within the entity you are registering. A copy of the EULA is available to download from this link, so that you can forward to the person on whose behalf you are accepting for the End User Location. Note: Failure to gain suitable warranty may mean that you are personally liable for any breaches of the EULA by the entity going forward.

Under the FMD regulations, SecurMed UK are required to check that the End User Locations entered are authorised locations for the dispensing of medicines.
