Pharmaceuticals: Commission launches new version of the Union Register

A new version of the Union Register of medicinal products was launched on 3rd May by the European Commission. This update provides a whole range of additional features, including filtering and export functionalities, and aims at offering an improved experience for all users through simplified navigation and greater compatibility with mobile devices.

Available since 1995, the Union Register lists all medicinal products for human and veterinary use (over 1.300 medicines) authorised by the Commission through the centralised procedure. It also covers designation of orphan medicinal products, refused authorisations and reviews related to nationally authorised medicinal products.
