The European Commission has launched a targeted stakeholder consultation on the revised guidelines on excipients in the labelling and package leaflet of medicinal products for human use.
According to Article 63(e) of Directive 2001/83/EC the Commission, in consultation with the Member States and the parties concerned, the Commission shall draw up and publish detailed guidance concerning the list of excipients which must feature on the labelling of medicinal products and the way in which these excipients must be indicated. The original Guidelines on excipients in the labelling and package leaflet of medicinal products for human use were adopted in 2003. These regulatory guidelines are part of Volume 2C of the Notice to Applicants. An amended version of the Guidelines have been prepared in order to reflect the development since publication of the original version. Opinions of the targeted stakeholders on this amended version are being sought. More information is available on the Commission’s website, where the consultation document can also be found.
Comments can be submitted by the 1st May to the contact persons of the EIPG Member Associations.
