DO YOU SUPPLY TO THE NHS? THEN YOU NEED PEPPOL By September 30th 2018 all suppliers to the NHS must have PEPPOL as part of the new NHS eProcurement Strategy. PEPPOL stands for Pan-European Public Procurement On-Line and is a network which allows suppliers and the NHS to share electronic business documents relating to e-commerce such as purchase orders and invoices, it allows electronic business documents to be easily and effi ciently exchanged between the public sector and suppliers. Any business that trades with the NHS must be part of the PEPPOL network by September. If you are not part of the PEPPOL network by September 30th 2018 – you will no longer be able to trade with the NHS.

The Integrated Knowledge Platform uses digital formats, EU MDR 745/2017 and EU IVDR 746/2017, alongside a search engine to highlight the relevant regulation information to the user. Leeds based MedBoardCo recognised the diffi culty medical device manufacturers face when trying to compute and integrate large regulation documents with additional requirements, implementing acts and technical information. To combat the complex regulatory problems medical device regulations manufacturers struggle with, they created a solution alongside fellow Leeds located company, Xiros. Medilink member, Xiros aided MedBoardCo from concept design, to development and providing feedback - they were also one of the fi rst companies to adopt the innovative technology. The Integrated Knowledge Platform displays all the associated regulatory information, correlations, GAP analysis, visuals and relevant external information applicable to the text. The digital programme contains a comprehensive database with regulatory and technical information, which enables medical device manufacturers to access all important, legal documentation in one, easily searchable place. 12 Our Senior PR Offi cer is Mary Hickey BA, PGDip, with over fi ve years’ experience working in PR in a variety of industries including local government, the third sector and higher education.
