Compassionate use permits


Primary variables


Compassionate Use Permits System administers dispensing authorisations for medicines that are not approved or marketed in Denmark.

As a general rule, it is unlawful to sell and dispense medicine that is not approved either by the Danish Medicines Agency or the EU Commission, but in special cases it may be temporarily necessarily to treat a patient with a non-approved medicine although this requires a dispensing authorisation which is available on application to the Danish Medicines Agency by doctors, dentists or vets.

Before granting a dispensing authorisation, the Danish Medicines Agency assesses whether this involves a special therapeutic reason for using an unauthorised drug, whether there is documentation for its efficacy for treating the disease concerned and that the quality is satisfactory and it is safe to use. The Danish Medicines Agency deals with around 9000 applications a year and these often relate to drugs already approved in other countries.
