Swedish Medicines Verification System (SMVS)
SMVS is the Swedish national system for the verification and decommissioning of products in scope of the Delegated Regulation 2016/161.
The SMVS is part of the European Medicines Verification System (EMVS) which is composed of a central European hub and connected national systems, in principle one for each country.
The main purpose of the national systems is to serve as the verification platforms that pharmacies, wholesalers and other required parties in that country can use to check a product’s “authenticity”. All data necessary to perform this and other relevant transactions are stored in the respective national systems. The main purpose of the European Hub is to serve as a gateway for the transmission of manufacturer and parallel distributor data to the national systems.
