Navigating Regulatory Affairs in Croatia: HALMED Guidelines for Medical Devices


As of July 1, 2013, Croatia officially became a member of the European Union (EU), and the oversight of regulatory and compliance activities for medicinal products and medical devices in the region is managed by the Agency for Drugs and Medical Devices (HALMED). While efforts have been made to align Croatia’s registration requirements with EU Directives, complete alignment has not yet been achieved. This may pose challenges for newcomers in terms of regulatory planning.

Freyr, a specialized global regulatory services provider, offers comprehensive consulting services for Regulatory affairs in Croatia. With expertise in serving as a professional European Authorized Representative, Freyr can navigate and facilitate the registration procedures for medicinal products and medical devices for foreign/non-EU manufacturers in Croatia.

Regulatory Authority

Agency for Medicinal Products and Medical Devices (HALMED)

The Agency for Medicinal Products and Medical Devices is a legal entity vested with public authority. It was established on 1st October 2003 as a legal successor to the Croatian Institute of Medicines Control and the Croatian Institute of Immunobiological Preparations Control, albeit with a considerably broader scope of work.

The Agency was established by the Republic of Croatia. Legal compliance of the Agency is supervised by the Ministry of Health.

It generates its own income through service fees and annual charges for provision of services from its scope of work, as well as through other sources in accordance with the Medicinal Products Act and other regulations.

The Agency provides services pertaining to medicinal products, medical devices, homeopathic medicinal products and veterinary medicinal products in accordance with the primary and secondary legislation of the Republic of Croatia.
