Certificate of Conformity (CoC) for Specials

There is no longer a requirement for contractors to submit copies of the Certificate of Analysis (COA) or Certificate of Conformity (COC) to the local NHSE&I team of the prescriber after dispensing unlicensed specials or imports not listed in Part VIIIB. As contractors are still required to keep the necessary records of unlicensed specials or imports they dispense, any COAs and COCs obtained can be retained by the pharmacy instead for a period of five years.
