EUDRAGMDP - Additional originals of certificates (GMP and GDP), authorizations (MIA's and WDA's) and registrations of active pharmaceutical ingredients (API REG).
(documents uploaded in the EUDRAGMDP database)
EudraGMDP is the name of the Community database for manufacturer and importer authorizations (MIA), good manufacturing practice certificates (GMP), wholesale distributor authorizations(WDA), good distribution practice certificates(GDP) and registration of the manufacturers, importers and distributors of active ingredients for human use in the EER (API REG) (http://eudragmdp.eudra.org/). The eudragmdp documents provided by the FAMHP are official authorizations and certificates from the database.
Annex to MIA and WDA
The manufacturing and import authorizations (MIA) and wholesale distributor authorizations (WDA) are issued by the European database EudraGMDP (http://eudragmdp.eudra.org ).These documents (MIA and WDA) are an integral part of the manufacturing and distribution authorizations issued by the FAMHP. These documents consist of Annex 1 or Annex 2 (MIA) or Annex 1 (WDA) which contains the licensed manufacturing activities (MIA) or distribution activities (WDA). These documents also include a series of optional annexes (MIA: Annexes 3 to 8 / WDA: Annexes 2 to 5). These optional annexes are not edited by the FAMHP.
These documents are created and signed by the applicant. Then legalized by the FAMHP. They are printed on paper with the company's letterhead. The SEEN FAMHP section must be placed on the first page of the document to be legalized (even if it consists of multiple pages). The “SEEN FAMHP field” is for the stamp and signature of the FAMHP, with a choice of CEO signature (for translations, for example) or CEO and a veterinarian (DVM) (for TSE statements for example, or at the request of foreign authorities). Please copy this box in its current form (do not reduce or enlarge), and retain the ARIAL font.
It is possible to acquire certified copies of previously issued documents by the FAMHP (for example: authorisations and certificates).
Certificate of Analysis (CA)
Using a certificate, the FAMHP confirms that the qualified person (QP) is authorized to sign analysis certificates.
General information for all certificates
As from June 2015 the left corner of the Certificates, issued by The Federal Agency for Medicines and Health Products (FAMHP Belgium), is no longer folded. This decision has been made because of the large amount of documents (example SPC) that is often to be attached to a certificate. Instead, the concerned document is stapled and every single page included in the document is stamped separately. This should ensure proper verification and further legalization remains possible.

The request occurs by post or by e-mail, depending on the type of document:
