Distributors and importers of medical devices

23 July 2015, Updated 08 September 2015

An importer is a Danish company that places a medical device from another EU/EEA country or a third country for sale on the Danish market.

A distributor is a Danish company that makes a medical device available on the Danish market. 

Danish distributors and importers of medical devices must register with the Danish Medicines Agency and provide information about the company's address, the class/type of the device and the product group.

The duty to register does not apply to:

  • manufacturers and representatives (Danish EU representatives of manufacturers headquartered outside Europe) that also distribute and/or import medical devices
  • shops that only sell medical devices by retail.

The duty to register appears from executive order no. 843 of 28 June 2013 (in Danish only) on importers and distributors of medical devices.
