Exclusive Products

Specials

The Medicines Act in the UK specifies that all products marketed in the UK must hold a Product Licence but recognises that there are some patients who have special requirements for drugs or formulations that are not economically viable as licensed medicines. The act therefore allows for these to be manufactured by pharmacies as “nostrums” or by licensed manufacturers as “specials” in response to a bona fide unsolicited order from a physician. These “specials” may not be advertised nor may claims be made as to their efficacy or use in any particular disease.

Durbin has had products manufactured in Durbin livery for the international market for many years and became involved in the supply of products as “specials” in the UK in the early 1990s. Please contact us for any specific requirements you may have.
