NNIT, a global provider of IT services and consultancy, has announced a worldwide partnership with SAP SE, the market leader in enterprise application software, to market leading solutions supporting regulatory compliance for Identification of Medicinal Products (IDMP) within the pharmaceutical industry.
The EMA is implementing five new standards developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Pharmaceutical companies will be required to submit data on medicines to EMA in accordance with common global formats and terminologies. The penultimate goal as defined by the EMA is to improve overall patient safety.
Committed to support these new regulatory requirements, NNIT will introduce tailored, innovative solutions intended to secure successful IDMP compliance within the authority timelines.

While sharing with SAP a strong dedication to life sciences and a documented legacy within the pharmaceutical industry, we look forward to delivering fully integrated services for robust IT throughout the pharmaceutical product life cycle."
