About the EU database of veterinary medicinal products (the Union Product Database)
The Union Product Database (UPD) was launched on 28 January 2022. The database will contain all authorised veterinary medicines in the EU. The Danish Medicines Agency and the other countries’ drug regulatory authorities are required to submit, electronically, information on authorised veterinary medicines to the database (article 155 of Regulation (EU) 2019/6 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 December 2018 on veterinary medicinal products and repealing Directive 2001/82/EC).
Unfortunately, it has not been possible to complete the planned submission of data on veterinary medicines authorised via the decentralised procedure (DCP), the mutual recognition procedure (MRP) and the national procedure by 28 January 2022. Therefore, a few authorised veterinary medicines may not appear in the Union Product Database. The Danish Medicines Agency is working together with the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and other national authorities to complete all submissions as soon as possible.
If your product is not in the database and if you, the marketing authorisation holder, have no upcoming submission of a variation not requiring assessment (VNRA), we recommend you wait for 14 days and search for your product again. The remaining products will be made available one by one.
If, on the other hand, you, the marketing authorisation holder, have an upcoming submission of a variation not requiring assessment (VNRA) and your product is not in the database, we advise you to contact the competent authority.
Products authorised via MRP/DCP with Denmark as reference member state (RMS)
If marketing authorisation holders find out that information about their products are missing in a concerned member state (CMS), they are advised to contact the authorities in that concerned member state.
Products authorised via MRP/DCP with Denmark as concerned member (CMS)
For products authorised with Denmark as concerned member state (CMS), check if information about the medicine is missing in both the reference member state (RMS) and the concerned member state (CMS). If this is the case, contact the authorities in the reference member state. If information about the product is only missing in Denmark, contact the Danish Medicines Agency by sending an email to Send an email.
