EU Marketing Authorization Application (MAA)

Banner with Title


Registration of a single Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) for medicinal product provides access to the Marketing Authorization Holders (MAHs)/Pharmaceutical manufacturers to manufacture and distribute in all the EU member states.

Although the harmonized Regulatory requirements of all the EU member states eases the development and documents generation activity for pharmaceutical manufacturers, the complexity of the procedural requirements will need a Regulatory expert with complete understanding on the EU country-specific requirements, Health Authority 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 to handle all the legal and administrative requirements along with registration support for the medicinal products through Article 8(3) (for innovator products) and Article 10(1) routes (for generic medicinal products), which enables the manufacturers and/or MAHs assurance on legal and procedural compliance for registration and distribution of their products in the EU countries.
