Objective of the consultation
Under the new pharmacovigilance provisions some medicinal products for human use are authorised subject to additional monitoring for reasons of their specific safety profile. Those products have to bear a black symbol which shall be selected by the Commission by July 2013 at the latest. In the context of selecting the symbol the Commission is currently considering the need for phasing-in arrangements for the inclusion of the symbol in the summary of product characteristics and the package leaflet of all products concerned.
This concept paper is being rolled out for public consultation with a view of receiving feedback from stakeholders on this issue.
