Guidelines for application for a compassionate use permit, veterinary (in Danish only)

Need to apply for a compassionate use permit or permission to use a magistral medicinal product?

Compassionate use permits are only issued for medicines manufactured by pharmaceutical companies.

The Danish Medicines Agency does not grant permission to use a magistral medicinal product (product prepared by a pharmacy) for animals. These applications must – in special cases – be submitted to the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration. Veterinarians can apply for permission to use a magistral medicinal product, which is not listed in Annex 2 of Executive Order 1353 of 29 November 2017 on Veterinarians use, dispensing and prescription of Veterinary Medicines (Danish title: “Bekendtgørelse om dyrlægers anvendelse, udlevering og ordinering af lægemidler til dyr”).

Pursuant to section 11(1) (i) of the Danish Medicines Act, magistral medicinal products are defined as medicinal products prepared in a pharmacy for an individual patient or animal in accordance with a prescription from a doctor or a veterinarian
