About Danish Medicines Agency

The Danish Medicines Agency is Denmark’s national regulatory authority for the licensing and monitoring of medicinal products, medical devices and clinical trials. Our mission is effective, safe and accessible medicines and safe medical devices that benefit society. 
 
We are around 400 employees based in Copenhagen and through the European Medicines Agency (EMA) we collaborate with our colleagues from the other European drug regulatory authorities. We participate in various professional working parties with other experts, and Denmark has a seat on all the European committees for medicinal products. 
 
Our vision is to become one of the leading drug regulatory authorities in Europe. This means that we want to be a key driver of European collaboration, obtain a strong international position and help boost Denmark a leading life science nation.
