  • Clarification of labelling practice for warning statements on human medicines

    | 05 January 2022 |

    During our review of applications for marketing authorisations for human medicines and variations to marketing authorisations, we have noted uncertainty about the labelling practice regarding the warning statements of schedule 2 of the Danish executive order on labelling.

We therefore find it necessary to clarify the labelling practice for warning statements on human medicines.
