Tender results

Pharmac has resolved to award tenders for Principal Supply Status for some products included in the 2023/24 Invitation to Tender, dated 31 October 2023.

Some of the Pharmaceuticals that will be delisted when the period of Principal Supply Status commences may be subjecting to existing listing contracts with Pharmac. Suppliers of Pharmaceuticals that are subject to such contracts should continue to supply their Pharmaceutical under those contracts. Pharmac will continue to subsidise those Pharmaceuticals accordingly until such time as those Pharmaceuticals are delisted.

Notification of Product Changes (NOPC) forms

Please note that for any changes (price change, pack size change, new listing etc) to be effective in the Pharmaceutical Schedule (including Section H), suppliers are required to submit a Notification of Product Changes (NOPC) form to Pharmac, the Pharmacy Guild and the NZULM by:

  • For new listings, by 4pm on the 12th of March 2024 or the 5th of the month prior to listing, whichever is earlier
  • For price changes, by 4pm on the 12th of the month prior to the date of subsidy change

Pharmac cannot list a product (and Pharmacies cannot claim) without this information. More information about this process, and a copy of the NOPC form can be found on our website.

Suppliers are required to ensure that a:

Pharmacode has been obtained from the Pharmacy Guild of New Zealand(external link) (external link)and 

CTPP code has been obtained from the New Zealand Universal List of Medicines(external link)

Pharmacodes and CTPP codes must be provided to Pharmac by the 5th of the month prior to the date of listing, or 10 business days following the market notification date (whichever is earliest). Pharmac cannot list a product (and Pharmacies cannot claim) without the correct Pharmacode.

2023/24 Tender – Principal Supply Status applies until 30 June 2027
