Revocation of S - classification postponed.

The Icelandic Medicines Agency postpones revocation of S – classification of certain medicinal products.

10.5.2013

In November 2012 the Agency informed marketing authorisation holders of certain medicinal products of its intention to revoke the so called S – classification (limited to hospital use) of their products in May 2013, cf. news on the Agency´s website dated 11 December 2012. Similar amendment has been announced in marketing authorisation letters of certain other medicinal products, which have been authorised since then.

Acting upon a request from the Ministry of Welfare the Agency has decided to postpone the anticipated revocation of S – classification of these products since more time will be needed to counteract foreseen consequences of the revocation.
