Approval from EMVO (European Medicines Verification Organization)

Together with Slovenia, Ireland and Sweden, Denmark are among the first countries to receive production approval. DMVO could not have reached this milestone without active support from the many stakeholders involved and without close cooperation with the other countries with the same blueprint provider.
