EC recommendations on improvement to package leaflets

21 December 2017

The Commission report to the European Parliament and Council published in March 2017 identifies a number of areas where improvements can be made, such as making the package leaflets easier to understand and making product information available in both electronic and paper formats, one of the key areas of EMA's action plan.
EMA together with the European Commission will organise a multi-stakeholder workshop in the third quarter of 2018 to develop key principles for the use of electronic formats. To facilitate this process, EMA is launching a mapping exercise involving all stakeholders to identify related initiatives by February 2018 (DG Health and Food Safety eNews, 30 November 2017).
