Register sales in Europe with FDA approved medicines, without having a current EU license

There is an exemption within EU legislation that permits the supply of unlicensed medicines under specific circumstances. Such medicines have also been called Named Patient medicines, Unlicensed medicines, Unauthorised medicines, Specials, Pre-Approval, Off- Protocol or Off-Label medicines. Exempt Medicinal Product is the most accurate and up to date terminology for the majority of these medicines.

The exempt medicinal program differs from a formal compassionate use program which is a mechanism for getting an unapproved but promising new treatment to patients who would otherwise be unable to receive it.

European sales revenues can be generated from FDA approved products ahead of the formal licensing process in Europe.
