You must have a current digital signing certificate loaded in the pharmacy system to claim, look up Special Authorities and PSC numbers, and integrate with NZePS.  If the certificate is loaded for claiming, (before the current certificate expires) it will also automatically update for NZePS and for SA and PSC lookups on ALL your computers.  


The following highlighted information is taken directly from the MOH - Delegated Administration Tool page (https://10.247.213.22/da) :-

 

The Ministry of Health has commenced work to replace the Online Pharmacy Claiming (OPC) system.
Part of this work requires changes to way in which digital certificates are loaded into systems.
From January 11 2021, the loading of digital certificates will need to be actioned by the Ministry’s Contact Centre.
To avoid delays and any negative impacts to your business, we recommend you contact the Ministry prior to your existing certificate lapsing.
This will be a short-term process while work to replace all of the Online Pharmacy Claiming system takes place.
