Licensing and supervision

Updated 20 June 2017

The Danish Medicines Agency or the European Commission must authorise medicinal products before the products can be sold in Denmark.

The purpose is to document that the medicinal product works, that it does not have too many and any serious adverse reactions and that the medicinal product 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. This is to ensure that the individual company is both physically and organisationally capable of handling medicinal products.
