State Agency of Medicines (SAM) supervises all licenced sites (manufacturers, wholesalers, pharmacies) through regular inspections.
The same inspection principles apply to human and veterinary medicinal products.
Case-by-case SAM inspects other institutions handling medicines e.g. health care establishments. Co-operation is made with the Health Board and the Veterinary and Food Board.
Inspection references are: national primary and secondary legislation (all activities involving handling of medicinal products), Eudralex Volume 4 Good Manufacturing Practice (manufacture).
Translation into English is available for the national regulation on wholesale distribution, which includes the requirements of Good Distribution Practice.
SAM co-operates with institutions under the Tax and Customs Board and the Police and Border Guard Board to contribute into prevention of illegal activities and counterfeits.
