Explanatory Notes

Notice Types

Withdrawal notices: Authorisations are withdrawn via the issue of a "withdrawal" notice which sets an expiry date for the authorisation. In most cases, the withdrawal notice allows for a grace period to allow use of stocks already in the supply chain. However, where there are safety concerns, the withdrawal may be immediate. The withdrawal notice refers back to the original authorisation, and the conditions of that authorisation. Prior to the legislation change on 14 June 2011, these were known as Revocation notices.

Authorisations may be withdrawn at any time for various regulatory or commercial reasons. For example, a withdrawal notice would be issued if authorisation conditions change; if the authorisation holder fails to meet a data submission deadline; following a review; or at the request of the authorisation holder. Each withdrawal has an explanation of the reason for the withdrawal.

Commercial Withdrawals: A commercial withdrawal is issued when an authorisation holder informs us that they no longer require the authorisation. This is usually for commercial reasons, such as when the product is no longer manufactured. The Withdrawal specifies the expiry date and any wind-down period. Prior to the legislation change on 14 June 2011, these were known as Withdrawal notices.

Amendments: We sometimes need to reflect the same change to a number of different authorisations (for example when the authorisation holder changes for a group of products). Rather than amend each individual authorisation, we can make changes to the conditions of authorisation via an amendment notice. This describes the nature of the change and lists all the products affected. You will note that the amendment notice refers back to the original authorisations, and all other conditions of those authorisations.

Corrections: A Correction Notice is issued when an error has been found in an authorisation. We issue a new notice to correct the mistake, and the earlier published version is replaced.

Authorisation: An Authorisation notice gives the conditions of the Authorisation for a product. Prior to the legislation change on 14 June 2011, these were known as Approval notices.
