EU Marketing Authorization Application (MAA)

Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) – Overview

Registration of a single Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) for medicinal products enables Marketing Authorization Holders (MAHs)/pharmaceutical manufacturers to manufacture and distribute their products in all the EU member states.

Although the harmonized Regulatory requirements of all the EU member states ease the development and documents generation activity for pharmaceutical manufacturers, the complexity of the procedural requirements will need a Regulatory expert with a complete understanding of the EU country-specific requirements, Health Authority (HA) interactions, and Marketing Authorization Application registration activities (MAA submissions) to avoid validation rejections, major clock-stops which will delay the marketing authorization approval process, and go-to-market timelines.

Freyr, having established offices in multiple EU countries, assists pharmaceutical manufacturers in handling all the legal and administrative requirements along with registration support for medicinal products through Article 8(3) (for innovator products) and Article 10(1) routes (for generic medicinal products), which offers manufacturers and/or MAHs - Marketing Authorization Holders assurance on legal and procedural compliance for registration and distribution of their products in the EU countries.
