The transfer procedure must be used where the legal entity of an authorisation/registration holder is changed and the product is transferred to a new company during the authorisation procedure stage. When an authorisation is transferred during the national phase but before the granting of the marketing authorisation, the new holder must notify the Medicines Authority using Transfer Form B. Once the application is considered valid, the transfer will be processed within approximately 60 days.

What you'll get
