Compassionate use permits

Updated 24 October 2018

Dispensing of medicines not marketed in Denmark

In special circumstances and to a limited degree, we may authorise the sale or dispensing of medicines that are not marketed in Denmark. This requires a compassionate use permit for the medicine. Compassionate use permits are only issued for medicines manufactured by pharmaceutical companies.

Doctors, veterinarians and dentists may apply for a compassionate use permit for human and veterinary medicines

You will receive a reply to the application by post. You must notify the pharmacy yourself by attaching a copy of the compassionate use permit to the prescription.

Applications for magistral medicines

We do not grant permission to use a magistral medicinal product (product prepared by a pharmacy). Instead we refer to our page on magistral medicinal products.
