Intervention entry and import of drugs

Intervention entry and import of drugs refers to the drugs without marketing authorisation in Croatia

As a result of a fast growing demand for special therapeutic drugs which are still unavailable in Croatia, but are necessary for daily treatment of patients, PHOENIX Farmacija has for some time been intensively and with great dedication developing the department for intervention entry and import of drugs, in order to be able to give a swift and reliable response to all the demands of our loyal clients at any time, thus providing patients with timely therapy.

We have been cooperating with a growing number of reliable and esteemed foreign partners from the EU (entry of drugs) and outside the EU (import of drugs), enabling us to be proactive in procuring drugs, while continually listening to market needs and adapting to its changes.

Through daily cooperation with and support from the Croatian Agency for Medicinal Products and Medical Devices (HALMED) and the Ministry of Health, complying with all the principles of good distribution and manufacturing practice, we can provide the following services:

ENTRY AND IMPORT OF PRESCRIPTION DRUGS – additional service for pharmacies
ENTRY AND IMPORT OF DRUGS BASED ON A STATEMENT – additional service for hospitals and clinics

Intervention entry/import of drugs is under the authority of the Agency for Medicinal Products and Medical Devices which issues approval for the entry and import of unregistered drugs (pursuant to Articles 64 and 120 of the Act on Drugs*).

On the basis of a prescription or a statement made by a hospital or a clinic, PHOENIX Farmacija is fast and reliable in entering and importing:

Drugs from the generics list
Parallel drugs registered in Croatia, which are not on the market
Drugs not registered in Croatia, for which the Agency approves entry/import
