The penalties for parallel import may vary from compensation to the destruction of the supply of articles.

Parallel imports of medication

The ban on parallel imports does not apply to medication. If you want to put medicines on the market as a parallel importer, you will need a parallel marketing authorisation from the Medicines Evaluation Board (MEB) (College ter Beoordeling van Geneesmiddelen, CBG).
