Basic materials for medical devices; application for a declaration of safety

If you need a certificate for presentation to customs or an authority in a third country for the import of basic substances or mixtures containing basic substances or natural products, you can apply for a declaration of no objection.



  • You must be a resident of Germany.
  • When applying for a declaration of clearance for drop shipments of category 1 precursors, you must be in possession of a permit.
  • When applying for a declaration of clearance for a category 2 precursor, you must be in possession of a registration.


You can apply for the declaration of safety informally by e-mail or by mail. The BfArM will review your application. If further information is required, the BfArM will contact you. If you are granted the declaration of safety, the BfArM will send it to you by your preferred method.
