NHS medicine suppliers must join a PEPPOL Access Point before March 31, 2018

20/10/2017

NHS timeline

The NHS e-Procurement Strategy in the UK continues its progressive adoption timeline to new business groups. Following the medical devices companies, now it’s the turn for medicine suppliers, such as pharmaceutical companies or laboratories. The first deadline for these companies is March 31, 2018, where they must comply with the previewed tasks in less than six months.

The first phase includes the following tasks:

  • Joining a PEPPOL Access Point;
  • Allocating a GS1 GLN number in the GLN Registry;
  • Providing the DoH with a statement of commitment to the adoption of GS1 and PEPPOL standards;
  • Allocating 14 digit GS1 Global Trade Item Numbers (GTINs) at patient pack level.

The next key deadline for these companies will be September 30, 2018, with the completion of the reception orders from NHS PEPPOL APs including GS1 GTIN and GLN data.

EDICOM provides GS1 and PEPPOL compliance from one single provider

EDICOM is both an accredited PEPPOL Access Point and owns a certified GS1 electronic catalog. With these two certifications, any NHS supplier will be certain to achieve compliance with the e-Procurement Strategy. This means it is possible to centralize everything in compliance with the DoH on a single platform, enhancing efficiency and cutting economic costs.

The accreditation as an Access Point allows EDICOM to link up with the PEPPOL e-procurement platform. Through it, private companies and governments in countries all over Europe can exchange all kinds of e-documents: invoices, purchase orders, orders, price catalogues, etc. These business processes are carried out in a standardized and interoperable manner.

The GS1 certified Data Pool allows these businesses to maintain an updated product database accessible to any other NHS user, so that information is always correct and available. The success of a data synchronization system within the GDSN network is based on the quality of the information shared between the trading partners. Our EDICOMData Data Pool provides synchronization of product databases according to GS1 standards. It also implements specific services for publication of multimedia context for images, videos or audio clips.
