Tip: How to find a document in 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.

Seen

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 Verdana font.

Certified copies

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As from 17th October 2019 the round ink stamp has been replaced by a dry stamp (relief stamp) with the logo of the FAMHP. This stamp will be used on the relevant documents (CPP, LS, SEEN, CC, extra original EudraGMDP documents). This means that the usual round stamp is only placed in the provided frame with the signature. The authenticity of a certificate or document can always be verified on request via the e-mailbox certificates@fagg-afmps.be.
