Licensing of Pharmacies
Starting and running a pharmacy requires a licensing process involving town councils and INFARMED – National Authority of Medicines and Health Products and is regulated by Decree-Law no. 307/2007, of 31 August, amended by Decree-Law no. 75/2016, of 8 November.
INFARMED has a licensing unit, accessed through the “Licenciamento+” website, that analyses the different processes. This entity is responsible not only for licensing pharmacies but also for entities that manufacture, distribute, commercialize and use medicines for human use, medical devices, cosmetics, body hygiene and other related products.
All these activities are subject to distinct licensing mechanisms that, according to the type of activity, must include the applicable documents submitted through the “Licenciamento+” website for licensing purposes.
Konceptness guarantees a successful procedure to obtain the licensing, authorizations and assessments required by INFARMED in accordance with applicable legislation.
