Medical products (also known as Pharmaceutical Products or Drug Products) referred to products used in medicine containing a substance or combination of substances that are intended to treat, prevent or diagnose a disease or to restore, correct or modify physiological functions by exerting a pharmacological, immunological or metabolic action. This product category is the largest group of products used in medicine and the main area of activity for pharmaceutical companies. The registration and marketing of medicinal products is strictly regulated by law, both at the European Union level (governed by EMA- European Medical Agency) and local (local, country-specific pharmaceutical law). According to European Directive 2001/83/EC, medical products are classified into separate types of application with different legal basis (MA categories), respectively:
Each of the application types has different registration requirements and requires a different Regulatory Affairs approach. In accordance with European law, medicinal products may be registered in specific types of procedures, including: Centralized Procedure (CP), National Procedure (NP), Mutual Recognition Procedure (MRP) and Decentralized Procedure (DCP). The choice of the registration procedure depends on the type of product and the MAH’s (Market Authorization Holder) commercial plans.
