  • New documents - marked with an N are documents which are new to the emc, but may not necessarily be new to market
  • Updated documents - marked with a U are documents which have recently been approved by the industry regulator and updated on emc by the Pharmaceutical company that markets the medicine
  • Retired documents, removed from the emc website - marked with an R are documents which have been retired from emc by the marketing authorisation holder. This may be due to the transfer of product licence or discontinuation of the product
