Medicines must be authorised by the Danish Health and Medicines Authority – or the European Commission – before they can be sold in Denmark.
The purpose is to document that the medicine works, that there are not too many and any serious adverse reactions and that the medicine is of a high quality.
All companies engaging in the manufacture, import or sale of medicinal products must be authorised by the Danish Health and Medicines Authority and are supervised regularly. This is to ensure that the individual company is both physically and organisationally capable of handling medicines.
