As from 1 May 2018, the FAMHP has simplified a number of procedures for homeopathic and (traditional) herbal medicines. These modifications should streamline the process and reduce the administrative burden for companies and the health authorities.
Following simplifications have been applied:
- The marketing authorization (MA) or registration of a homeopathic or (traditional) herbal medicine is innovated. The introduction of a so-called “MA light” instead of an MA for herbal or homeopathic remedies.
- Guidelines for the submission of a file for a homeopathic or a (traditional) herbal medicine are provided.
