The vendors are – I Computer Solutions, Link Technologies, NEED ERP, and Pacific IT Solutions.
Their full contact and accreditation details are available on the FRCS website.
FRCA CEO – Visavanath Das says, they have negotiated with these vendors to ensure, that there is minimum cost for compliance.
More vendors will come on board once they complete the accreditation process, which is currently being undertaken by the FRCS.
Das stressed there is no extension to the deadline for implementation, however, the FRCS will waive or defer penalty enforcement, for those who have made an effort to comply, by registering for VMS and collecting their smartcards with passwords.
The deadline for supermarkets and pharmacies to comply – is 28th February, 2018.
Medical centres, travel agencies, accounting firms, law firms and hardware companies, are required to install, implement and operate the system, on or before June 30, 2018.
