There are 5 steps for the Distributor to register with NHRA’s NHRA-MVC Traceability Hub and be able to submit master data to the NHRA-MVC Traceability Hub. The first four steps are pre-requisites and must be completed before loading Distributor Location information to the NHRA-MVC Traceability Hub.
To register Distribution locations with the NHRA’s NHRA-MVC Traceability Hub, the Distributor will need to identify all distribution locations by their assigned Global Location Numbers (GLNs).
All Distributors must be registered with GS1 and have a Global Location Number (GLN) and Global Company Prefix (GCP) assigned. Make sure you know the GS1 Global Location Number (GLN) and Global Company Prefix (GCP) assigned to the each distributer location.
Registration applications must be submitted and approved by the NHRA to permit pharmaceutical products to be sold in Bahrain. Payment must be made to the NHRA at the time of registration. The NHRA registration process contains all of the necessary MAH location information.
Identification Number issued by the PPR and the Identification Number issued to your organization by the NHRA indicating the MAH is registered and approved in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
All Distributors must complete a Participation Agreement contract with the NHRA prior to loading the Distributor Location Data.
Once the Distributor has completed its NHRA and GS1 registrations, the Administrative Contact must select the Registration Link for the Distributor Registration. Your NHRA-MVC Participation Agreement contract (STEP 3 above) must be fully executed before the registration will be finalized.
Once the Distributor has completed Steps 1 through 4, the various distributor locations must be uploaded to the NHRA-MVC Traceability Hub. The Distributor must upload the Distributor locations to the NHRA-MVC Traceability Hub to complete the registration. The Technical Point of Contact should use the Master Data Load process to load the Distributor locations for the parent Distributor. The Technical POC will log into the NHRA-MVC website and select the Load Products link.
Upload the list of Distributor locations to the NHRA-MVC Traceability Hub so they can be linked to the parent Distributor organization.
