In its communication on safe, innovative and accessible medicines the objective of providing better information for patients on prescription-only medicinal products had been identified as one of the key issues. On December 10, 2008 the Commission had submitted 3 legislative proposals aiming at the realisation of these objectives for the pharmaceutical sector. On October 11 the Commission adopted the revised proposals taking into account the European Parliament’s proposals for amendment.
