Greek Medicine

1. Effective and Reliable

The Greek pharmaceuticals contain the original active substance indicated for the treatment of patients and are in circulation in Greece under the control of the National Medicines Agency (EOΦ). Essential item for the authorization of Greek pharmaceuticals is the submission of bioequivalence studies, carried out on behalf of the pharmaceutical companies in collaboration with government hospitals or private clinics in Greece or abroad. EOΦ, as also the corresponding medicine agencies of the EU countries, evaluates thoroughly the bioequivalence studies and other elements of the full application of the product. This means that the Greek Pharmaceuticals have proven effectiveness, guaranteed quality and safety.

The Greek Pharmaceuticals are produced to the highest international standards in state of the art factories in Greece, following to the letter the quality assurance standards and codes of good manufacturing and are controlled by top specialised personnel. The Greek production factories are continuously controlled not only by the ΕΟΦ but also by the the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The above organizations and also the medicine organizations in more than 85 countries, check in their turn and certify the Greek Medicines.

The efficacy and safety of Greek Medicines is guaranteed by the systematic control in certified quality control laboratories based on the highest standards of quality assurance (QA) and the codes of good manufacturing (GMP). Even after the authorization of Greek Medicines, ΕΟΦ also conducts laboratory and sampling controls along with scheduled and unscheduled inspections, without ever referring any problems.
