Choosing Your Certificate
For EPCS Prescribing
You are required to use an IGC Prescribing | Basic Assurance | Individual Identity | Hardware Storage | Mobile Authentication certificate, which allows you to store your certificate on your HID USB token and used to sign your prescriptions.
In the case where hardware is issued, ONLY THE SUBSCRIBER OF THE CERTIFICATE SHOULD HAVE EXCLUSIVE USE OF THEIR TOKEN – In all cases, THE DIGITAL CERTIFICATE IS YOUR FORM OF IDENTIFICATION, SIMILAR TO YOUR PASSPORT OR DRIVER’S LICENSE. Under the IGC Certificate Policy, it is our responsibility as an Authorized Certification Authority to revoke the certificate in a case of hardware loss or disclosure or compromise of the private key or any certificate related password to anyone other than the subscriber.
