Security and Traceability
Each wholesaler has to get connected to the national repository system of the country where he operates in order to fulfill the legal requirements. In specific cases i.e. delivery from other wholesalers, returns or in suspected case of tampering or falsification the wholesaler has to verify the authentificy of the unique identifier.
To implement the medicine verification system, the association named AMVO (Austrian Medicines Verification Organisation) was founded. The association of the Austrian full-line pharmaceutical wholesalers PHAGO is member of AMVO as well as other important stakeholders of the Austrian health care system.
