Every national IT system is linked to the European database which contains data on all products.

  • Onboarding

    Getting the verification system to work requires all manufacturers and other marketing authorisation holders to upload their data to the European database. All marketing authorisation holders on the Danish market will have to sign an agreement with DMVO. This ensures listing of all packs marketed in Denmark on the Danish database.

  • Patient safety

    The aim of the new system is to enhance patient safety. The genuineness of each individual pack must be checked before being dispensed to the patient.
