Drugs; Application for information about admission

If you would like information on the approval, testing and safety of a medicinal product for use in humans or immunological veterinary medicinal products, you can obtain information.





If you are looking for information on medicinal products that have already been authorised or were previously authorised, you can search for these medicinal products in the free public database of the Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM).

If you would like to know whether a marketing authorisation for a medicinal product has been applied for at the BfArM, you can view this in a monthly updated list on the BfArM website.
If you need further information, you can submit an inquiry online to the BfArM or to the Paul Ehrlich Institute - Federal Institute for Vaccines and Biomedical Products (PEI).
