Allocation of time slots (DCP)

Updated 22 January 2024

In order to best meet applicants’ requests for specified submission dates and to optimise our own use of time and resources, future applicants are advised to request time slots for their application(s) within a reasonable time prior to the proposed application date, however max. 1 year before the desired submission date.

Time slots will only be allocated to applications for new marketing authorisations (including line extensions) through the decentralised procedure (DCP) where Denmark is acting as reference member state (RMS).

Other types of marketing authorisation applications can, unless otherwise indicated, be submitted without a time slot agreement.

Current status

Time slots may be requested at any time, but there is a limit to how far in the future you will be able to request a time slot. This limit is 1 year ahead, as we experience a number of cancellations from applicants when slots are given with a longer time horizon.

Time slots are allocated on a “first come first served” basis. If the requested time slot is not available, we will suggest a suitable alternative.

General information about time slots

Time slot requests for any given period must be submitted by interested applicants to the Danish Medicines Agency.

Mutual recognition procedures (MRP) including repeat use procedures (RUP) /subsequent recognition procedure (SRP) with Denmark as RMS

It is no longer necessary to request a time slot for these procedures. The applicant should be aware that before starting such a procedure, the Danish Medicines Agency is required to update the assessment report. The expected time for these updates can be obtained using the contact details below.
