Pharmaceutical products subject to a special permit
We import pharmaceutical products subject to a special permit and distribute them to pharmacies, hospital pharmacies and dispensaries. We are involved in securing national pharmaceutical services. We even track down medical products for the treatment of a single patient in cases where no authorised pharmaceutical products are available. We also apply for special permits for dispensaries and veterinarians.

The special permit products imported by Tamro are mainly authorised products in their country of origin, such as elsewhere in Europe or in North America. We ensure the reliability of our extensive supplier network by conducting regular supplier-specific quality assessments both on site and in writing.
We also regularly monitor the performance of our suppliers to ensure the security of supply of special permit products. The high quality of import transport is ensured by monitoring the temperature throughout the transport chain and only using reliable logistics companies. We also take care of any suspected product defects and side-effect reports with the manufacturer and the authorities.
The MyTamro service channel offers a summary of product characteristics or a package insert for almost all special permit products in the original language, and a Finnish translation is available for several products in the Terveysportti portal.We import new special permit products at the request of customers.
Some special permit products are in-stock products, whereas some are ordered when needed. In urgent situations, products can be imported to Finland even on a tight schedule.

Product availability, accuracy and timeliness of deliveries, high-quality distribution and customer satisfaction comprise the key metrics of our quality system and are measured regularly for continuous development.
We import and distribute raw materials and packaging supplies for pharmaceutical manufacturing in pharmacies and hospital pharmacies and provide expert services related to these activities. We also deliver a wide range of non-medicinal raw materials and packaging materials to other customer groups.
Pharmaceutical raw materials are only ordered from suppliers that have been deemed reliable. Each batch of raw materials imported is re-labelled at Tamro’s pharmaceutical factory, at which time a batch-specific certificate of analysis is also added to each labelled package. Pharmaceutical raw materials are approved for sale by Tamro after a careful quality assurance process.
We import and distribute pharmaceutical raw materials, excipients, acids and bases, substances classified as food and herbal remedies. A safety data sheet is available for all raw materials. The range of packaging materials consists of medicine bottles, tins, ointment tubes and medical preparation supplies such as capsule filling equipment. Depending on the customer's needs, it is also possible to order raw materials and packaging materials from a wide network of suppliers.
