Pharmaceutical product registration
According to Iraqi law, foreign manufacturers cannot register in the Ministry of Health in Iraq unless they have an Iraqi agent. The Iraqi agent must be registered with the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Trade and the local chamber of commerce and must have a valid scientific bureau registered with the MOH to enable them to operate. Then comes the long and timely job of filling various application forms and providing evidence of manufacturing facilities to register the company in Iraq which will costs varying amounts, can take upto a year and requires constant pursuing of different offices to obtain the licenses.
After the manufacturer is registered, then comes the need to register each active product before it can be sold in the Iraqi market. This is a complicated process that involves getting different test results and inspections for each product before it can get approved by the Iraqi MOH.
