Licensing and supervision
The Danish Medicines Agency – or the European Commission – must authorise medicines before they can be sold in Denmark.
The purpose is to document that the medicine works, that there are not too many and any serious adverse reactions and that the medicine is of a high quality.
All companies engaging in the manufacture, import or sale of medicinal products must be authorised by the Danish Medicines Agency and are supervised regularly. The is to ensure that the individual company is both physically and organisationally capable of handling medicines.
