Product defects and recall of medicines (Rapid Alert)

The Danish Medicines Agency must be informed if a company considers a product defect may lead to the recall of a medicine from the market.

Reporting of product defects that may lead to a recall


If you need to inquire about an application for reimbursement, please call the division on +45 4488 9696 (9:00 - 15:00 Monday to Friday).

You can also write to us via this encrypted form (in Danish only). You will need your NemID to use the form. We will send a letter to the e-Boks of the person the question concerns.

If you are making an inquiry about reimbursement on behalf of someone else, we need the consent or authorisation from that person, but not if you are inquiring about your child which you have custody of.
