Join the discussion on how ATC and Melclass come together in a medicinal product dictionary at the next UNICOM Community of Expertise scheduled on Thursday 29 April March 2021

The importance of medicinal product dictionaries (MPDs) is highlighted by two concrete examples. MPDs bring together the information on medicinal products validated by a National Competent Authority and a variety of sources. Making sure that the identification of the medicinal product across these sources can be done automatically and without error, makes the implementation of IDMP such a crucial task. In addition to the IDMP standards, and as an example of supplementary sources of data, we will also highlight the possible use of the Melclass database on the classification of medicines and their supply conditions (maintained by EDQM), as well as the ATC (and DDD) classification as maintained by the WHO-CC for Drugs Statistics Methodology.!
