The Danish Medicines Agency prefers to receive clinical trial applications electronically. For example, applicants can submit the application on CD-ROM, an alternate physical storage media or online via Eudralink. These options are explained below.

Applications via DKMAnet

Another possibility is to submit applications about clinical trials in humans via DKMAnet, our access-controlled extranet: Applying for clinical trial authorisations via DKMAnet.

Formats required for CD-ROM and Eudralink submission

Use the following formats if you apply on CD-ROM or via Eudralink:

  • Documents to be included in one PDF file. The file must contain bookmarks for each document included.
  • The maximum file size is 200 MB. If the application is bigger, the IMPD/IB should be included in a separate file.
  • EudraCT XML file.

Application on CD-ROM

If the application is submitted on a CD-ROM or other physical storage media, the applicant must enclose a duly signed cover letter on paper and as a PDF file on the storage media.

Please send the CD-ROMs or alternate physical storage media to: Clinical Trials, Danish Medicines Agency, Axel Heides Gade 1, 2300 Copenhagen S, Denmark.

Application via Eudralink
