Licensing of Pharmacies

The installation and operation of a pharmacy is subject to a licensing process involving local authorities and INFARMED – the National Authority for 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, which has a licensing unit on the Licensing+ Portal to analyse the different processes, is the entity responsible not only for licensing pharmacies, but also for entities dedicated to the manufacture, distribution, commercialisation and use of medicines for human use, medical devices, cosmetics, body hygiene products and others.

All these activities have different licensing mechanisms, which, depending on the type of activity, must be instructed with the appropriate process on the Licensing+ Portal.
