What are pharmaceutical crimes?

The German Medicinal Products Act (AMG) prohibits, among other things, the placing on the market of

  • unsafe medicinal products (medicinal products shall be considered unsafe if, according to the current level of scientific knowledge, there is sufficient reason to suspect that, when used in accordance with their intended purpose, they have harmful effects which exceed the limits considered tolerable in the light of current medical knowledge)
  • falsified medicinal products or active ingredients
  • of medicinal products for the purpose of doping in sport

The only way to find out if a medicinal product is unsafe or falsified often is an analytical test. This is where InphA comes into play.

Regulation regarding the amount of doping drugs (DmMV)

With regard to the use of medicinal products for doping purposes, the DmMV (Regulation regarding the amount of doping drugs), regulates, in accordance with § 6a Section 2a German Medicinal Products Act (AMG), the level above which the possession of specific doping drugs for doping in humans is prohibited.
