How much do NZMT listings cost?
Why are NZMT Listings important?
Which products require an NZMT listing?
Every new medicine or subsidised product sold in NZ must be listed in the NZMT.
Every existing medicine requires a new NZMT listing when there are changes to brand name, active ingredient, strength, dose form, pack size or container.
Do I need a new NZMT listing if there are changes to a medicine?
Yes. You need to apply for a new NZMT listing each time there are changes to brand name, active ingredient, strength, dose form, pack size or container of a medicine.
If you are uncertain whether you need a new listing please phone the NZMT Editorial Team on 04 567 8570. They will be happy to provide advice.
Do I need an NZMT listing to get consent from Medsafe?
Before lodging an application you’ll need to apply for an NZMT listing by email (to [email protected]) for your medicine. This is because Medsafe asks for a copy of the Listing Certificate provided by NZMT as part of your application.
PHARMAC also asks for details of the product’s NZMT listing as part of the process of applying for a Pharmaceutical Schedule listing. You can use the Listing Certificate as part of your Pharmaceutical Schedule application too.
Has Medsafe’s role changed?
What if I forget to provide NZMT listing details with my Medsafe application?
Do I still need to apply for a Pharmacode®?
