To register products with BMVC the MAH will need to identify all products by their assigned Global Trade Identification Numbers (GTINs) and its manufacturing site must be identified using properly formatted GS1 identifiers.

Make sure you know the GS1 Global Location Number (GLN) and Global Company Prefix (GCP) assigned to the manufacturing location of each product.
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.
All MAH’s, Distributors / Wholesalers and Dispensers must complete a Participation Agreement contract with the BMVC before the MAH registration can be completed.
Once the Distributor has completed its NHRA and GS1 registrations, the Administrative Contact must log into the BMVC website and select Registration Link for the Distributor Registration. Your BMVC Participation Agreement contract (STEP 3 above) must be fully executed before the registration will be finalized by MVC Global.
Once the Distributor has completed Steps 1 through 4, the various dispensing locations must be registered with MVC Global. The MAH must upload the Distributor locations to the BMVC 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.
