Regulatory services
in Serbia

The manufacture/import and marketing of medicinal products and medical devices is heavily regulated in the Serbian market, with a number of different entities involved in the regulatory procedures. High levels of bureaucracy are evident.

Increasingly constructive dialogue between industry and the regulators (driven as a result of industry frustration) however, together with pressure created from the need to prepare for future membership of the EU should mean positive regulatory change. Understanding the key regulatory players, structures and systems within an evolving regulatory situation is vital to building a sustainable business in the country.

As your local regulatory partner Grove has access to the key institution regulating the market, notably, the Medicines and Medical Devices Agency (ALIMS) as well as the Ministry of Health.
