ezFMD – Main Screen Summary
1: Product Data
The Product Data area displays the information read from the barcode on a pack. An FMD compliant barcode must contain four pieces of information:
- Product Code
- Serial Number
- Batch Number
- Expiry Date
The action shows the operation that you wish to perform on scanned packs. In most situations you will probably wish to mark a pack as dispensed. The actions you are allowed to perform will depend on your organisation’s role. For example., the actions a pharmacist may perform differ from those that a wholesaler may perform. Your organisations administrator may also limit the actions that you can perform.

- Green All OK – proceed.
- Orange Proceed with caution. Refer to applicable SOP.
- Red Stop. Refer to applicable SOP.
