Let's Talk


Greetings from
Freyr Italy

With a mixed public-private healthcare system, Italy attracts medicinal products or device manufacturers from across the globe. At the same time, the requirement for controlled drug / device releases in the market necessitates foreign manufacturers to be more vigilant on the regulations imposed by the Ministry of Health. While Agenzia Italiana del Farmaco, AIFA - the Italian Medicines Agency - is responsible for drug regulations, medical devices are regulated by European Union’s competent authorities.

Freyr, as a global regulatory partner, assists foreign manufacturers in interpreting the Italian regulations and advises them on Regulatory strategies to be implemented for the region for compliant market authorizations. With streamlined and quicker submission procedures, Freyr provides Regulatory support and consulting services in Italy for:

Industries We Serve in Italy

Italy is a prominent EU nation with steady demand for drug and biological products.

Italy is the first market for food supplements in the European Union (EU), and companies operating in the sector find it highly attractive. Food supplements in Italy are regulated by Legislative Decree No. 169/2004, implementing Directive 2002/46/EC. However, it is important to note that a product's classification as a food supplement, dietary supplement, nutraceutical, Natural Health Product (NHP), complementary medicine, health food, health functional food, or health supplement in other markets does not automatically qualify it as such in the EU or Italy.
