Export certificates for medicinal products
An export certificate is a declaration from the Danish Medicines Agency based on a manufacturing authorisation for a Danish company, an issued marketing authorisation for a specific medicinal product or a requested inspection. The company fills in an export certificate form, and the Danish Medicines Agency then issues the certificate. The export certificate is used to certify the medicinal product or the manufacturer when exporting medicinal products.
Export certificates are issued in accordance with the WHO certification scheme. Read more about export certificates on the WHO’s website under Guidelines on the implementation of the WHO certification scheme on the quality of pharmaceutical products moving in international commerce
We issue the following types of export certificates on request:
- Certificate of Pharmaceutical Product (CPP1/CPP2)
- Statement of Licensing of Pharmaceutical Product (LSPP)
- Statement on Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP)
- Statement on Good Distribution Practices (CGDP)
- Batch Certificate of a Pharmaceutical Product (BCPP)
- TSE certificates
- Credibility statements
We issue an EU GMP certificate to pharmaceutical manufacturers after each completed GMP inspection if the inspected company operates according to the EU GMP guidelines. GMP certificates are issued using a community format published by the EMA, see the Community procedures on the EMA’s website. We will phase out the issuance of CGMP (no. 3) as the EU GMP certificates become more widely used and recognised in the countries requiring documentation for GMP compliance.
