You must change the status to ‘Marketed’ before you can upload a new package leaflet.

The marketing authorisation holder (MAH) is responsible for uploading package leaflets to DKMAnet - Package Leaflets.

Must a company notify long-term changes in marketing status on DKMAnet - Package Leaflets?

The company is responsible for changing the status of a medicine to ‘Not marketed’ in connection with long-term cessation of the marketing of a product when this is not caused by deregistration or suspension of marketing authorisation.

A change of marketing status on DKMAnet - Package Leaflets will only be used in relation to DKMAnet - Package Leaflets and thus In other words, it is not considered a notification in the meaning of the Danish Medicines Act, which provides that companies are required to notify changes in marketing status to the Danish Health Authority.

For how long is a package leaflet visible on after a change of status to “Not marketed”?

The package leaflet will remain on the website for 180 days after the company has changed the status of a medicine to ‘Not marketed’.
