Pharmacies, hospital pharmacies, dispensaries and wholesalers connect to the Medicines Verification System through their own existing IT systems. The aim is that the system operates in the background whenever possible and does not interrupt the normal routines in medicine distribution. 

If your client needs to connect to the system or is changing their IT system, please check some additional information about the onboarding process


The Finnish NMVS is supplied by Arvato Systems
If your client is connected to the system, you need to register with the Arvato NMVS Software Supplier Portal. You can register using your personal information and the registration is confirmed by FiMVO (an email confirmation will be sent to you). The Portal gives you access to e.g.:

  • direct support and advice for creating and maintaining the interface and assistance in technical issues (e.g. FAQ and Arvato support services to IT providers)
  • reading and downloading technical documentation (technical interface specifications, return coders and explanations, guidance for testing, release updates etc.)
  • reading and receiving notifications (e.g. service messages  and downtime notifications).

If you have any questions, we are happy to help you at nmvs@fimvo.fi .
