Register as an End User

To register, please read our guidance below and the End User Licence Agreement (EULA) carefully. For more detailed information, please see our End User Registration Process Overview.

Before you begin the registration process, please have the following information at hand:

  • Name of organisation/company (legal entity)  
  • End User Location (full address and postcode)
  • End User Location Function(s)
  • Professional or sectoral body for the Location (e.g. CQC) and registration ID
  • Name, email and phone number for the End User Location Contact
  • Name, email and phone number for the MVS contact
  • Your Software Supplier, software name and version

First, please visit the SecurMed Portal and create an account for the Requestor.  The Requestor can then sign in and begin either the Single or Bulk Registration process.

Single Registration
If you have up to five End User Locations, we recommend that you complete a Single Registration for each.  

Bulk Registration
Use for five or more multiple locations for the same legal entity, using the Bulk Registration spreadsheet . This process differs slightly due to Bulk Import Spreadsheet the amount of data SecurMed are required to verify and process. 

Your Bulk Registration file will be stored securely within our system and we will check the data entered for formatting and data integrity. Our customer service team will then contact you within 10-15 working days to confirm the next steps, including an expected timeline, and how and where we will deliver your credentials. 

Multiple Functions
If your End User Location performs more than one Function, such as a Pharmacy and a Wholesaler, you will need to register each Function separately as individual End User Locations.

For more information please refer to the End User Registration Process Overview.

Note: If you are registering on behalf of an End User Location, you need to ensure that you are authorised to accept the EULA by the entity you are registering. Failure to gain suitable authorisation may mean that you are personally liable for any breaches of the EULA by the entity going forward.

Your data is held in full compliance with GDPR. If you have any questions, please see our full Privacy Notice

What happens next?

Under the FMD regulations, SecurMed are required to check that the End User Locations entered are authorised Locations for dispensing medicine. 

Your registration will be processed within 10-15 working days. If there are any issues with your registration, we will email you outlining the problems. Once these are resolved, your registration will proceed.

Once your registration is verified, the following access credentials will be sent to you via email and post within 10-15 days:

  • Your Username and Password – via post to the End User Location Contact address
  • Your Software (TAN) Code to download your UKNI MVS Certificate – via email to the address of the Requestor 

Please contact the SecurMed Service Desk if you have not received these details or been contacted within 15 working days of submission.

You will need both communications to validate your registration and enable access to the UKNI MVS.

Will Community/Hospital Pharmacies be able to return stock to their Wholesaler or a DTP manufacturer’s distributor?

This depends upon the terms and conditions of both the Wholesaler and the manufacturer. However, in general, we expect the current returns process will remain valid as long as the stock has not been decommissioned and the anti-tamper device is still intact.
