Pharmaceutical market in Germany has displayed a continued growth over the years. As a prominent member of European Union (EU), Germany requires a Market Authorization (MA) granted by the country’s Ministry of Health (MoH) to market and distribute medicinal products locally.

Germany is the second-largest market for food supplements in the EU, attracting companies in the sector. National regulations governed by the German Food Supplement Ordinance of May 24, 2004, implementing Directive 2002/46/EC, oversee the classification of food supplements. The classification of a product as a food supplement in other markets does not automatically classify it as such in the EU or Germany. Compliance with permitted substances, maximum levels, and banned substances is crucial. Ensuring accurate food labeling, advertising, and health claims verification is necessary to maintain food safety in Germany, and to avoid sanctions, product withdrawal, or recalls.
