Medicines for export

Declaration for export

A medicine which has not received marketing authorisation in Belgium or in another member state of the European Union can be exported as long as one obtains a declaration for export from the Minister or his representative (chief executive of AFMPS / FAMHP).

The request for a declaration for exporting a medicine for human use  must contain the information and documents mentioned in § 1 of article 120 of the Royal Decree dated 14/12/2006 relating to medicines for human and animal use. It must be sent to FAMHP.

The Minister or his representative communicates his decision to the applicant within 60 days from the date the request was submitted. He can demand additional information. In that case the 60-day timeframe is suspended until the requested information is supplied. The declaration for export is valid for 5 years, unless it is referring - in the case of medicines for human use – to Article 276 of the Royal Decree of 14/12/2006, in which case the declaration remains valid until 31st December 2011.

The declarations for export are subject to a payment of  150,83 € payable to the account of the FAMHP
