End User Registration Guidance - Updated

Registering with SecurMed for Access to the UKNI MVS

New Registration

Registration is required of all organisations and companies that handle or dispense prescription medicine, located in Northern Ireland, including (but not limited to):

  • Community Pharmacies
  • Hospital Pharmacies
  • GP Practices and Health Centres
  • Dispensing Doctors
  • Inpatient/Outpatient Clinics
  • Wholesalers

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.

Please consult with your competent authority to confirm whether you should register with us. 

Change of Ownership

If there has been a change of ownership at the location registered with SecurMed, the new owner will need to register the location again, to enable us to update our records and verify the change.  The new owner will be required to accept the End User Licence Agreement (EULA), before access to the UKNI MVS for that location can continue.

How to Register

Registration is a simple and easy process and requires the completion of our Registration Form which can be downloaded below. 

To complete the form 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

Complete all the fields on the form, save it, and email the completed form to us at help@securmed.org.uk.  

Further information and details of what is required to complete the form is provided here.

Once your completed registration form is submitted, the End User Licence Agreement (EULA) will be sent to you for signing via DocuSign (you do not need to have a DocuSign account).

Processing of your registration will commence on the return to SecurMed of the signed EULA.

Once your registration has been verified, credentials for accessing the UKNI MVS will be sent to you.

Please note: Our system is funded by pharmaceutical manufacturers and parallel distributors (MAHs) and does not require payment.
