Unsigned Prescriptions (NZePS only) The Director General of Health has approved a waiver under Regulation 43 of the Medicines Regulations 1984 for unsigned prescriptions to be recognised as legal prescriptions. This can only apply when strict criteria are met. The prescription must have a unique barcode and be both: (a) electronically generated by a prescriber from an approved electronic system integrated with the NZePS; and (b) dispensed via a pharmacy dispensing system that electronically matches the barcode stored in the NZePS broker. Note: this doesn’t apply to controlled drugs which are governed by different legislation. The use of the waiver requires approval by the Ministry before implementation, to ensure that any processes fully comply with the legislation and maintain patient safety and confidentiality
