Other Authorisations/Registrations

If someone different from the MAH or his local representative wishes to import for distribution a medicinal product with an MA in Iceland he must apply for a permission for a parallel import. Parallel import is movement of medicinal products between countries with the European Economic Area (EEA) based on a marketing authorisation granted by authorities in the import country. Authorities in the importing countries verify that the product is identical to or have no significant therapeutical differences from the one allready on the market. Only those with appropriate licences for wholesale distribution of medicinal products (according to Regulation No 699/1996) can apply for permission for parallel import.
