We navigate your Life Science company towards increased exports

Danske Life Science companies are driving the export of products like never before, but local health authorities are often difficult to deal with. The Trade Council assists you in navigating the jungle of regulations and non-transparent legislation.

Our Global Health Care Team helps companies with their exports of life science, medtech, pharma and health care products throughout the world. Read, for example (in Danish), how Novo Nordisk and ALK have increased their exports with help from The Trade Council.

Many companies within the health sector often describe exporting as “difficult” and “lacking in transparency”, and they feel the same way when having to manoeuvre through different regulatory levels and procedures in an effort to establish dialogue with local health authorities around the world. Therefore, Danish companies within life science, medtech and health care benefit greatly from The Trade Council’s help and advice towards understanding the legislation and culture of local health care markets. 

The export activities of companies are assisted by our Global Health Care Team, comprising advisers and experts who can guide your company through the often complex, changing and inconsistent regulation in the global health care markets.

Exporting life science, pharma and health care products requires regular and close dialogue with the local authorities if the barriers to market access are to be overcome as easily and elegantly as possible. This places increased demands on regulatory expertise and efficient processes in your company. 

In this regard, the close cooperation with public authorities on export matters is one of The Trade Council’s key areas of expertise. Our network opens doors for many Danish companies engaged in medtech, health care and pharma.
