Basic register

The basic register for medicinal products is a register maintained by Fimea on medicinal products with marketing authorisation and products with a temporary special permit. The register is updated twice monthly. The register is primarily intended for the use of health care organisations responsible for the acquisition, distribution and sales of medicinal products.

 In addition to the identification, classification and packaging details and information about the medicinal substance, the basic register for medicinal products includes the required codes for prescription terms and conditions, ATC classification, pharmaceutical form and storage container. The packaging information and purpose of use with relevant terms and conditions are stated in separate files.

The register does not include price information for pharmacies or conditions for reimbursement from the Finnish Social Insurance Institution Kela. Changes to previous information are indicated by package.

The basic register is in ASCII format, and it consists of several individual files. The files are available in Finnish.

Technical IT know-how is needed for further processing of the files.

 Please send any feedback on the basic register by e-mail to laakerekisteri@fimea.fi.
