The main requirements include:

  • those involved in the supply chain to record, keep and provide on request information related to sales and purchases of health service medicine, medical supplies and other related products
  • marketing authorisation holders, manufacturers and importers to tell government about any discontinuation and supply shortages of medicines

Draft regulations and a draft impact assessment have been published alongside this consultation.
