As of July 2013 all valid parallel imports licensed by the Federal Office for Safety in Healthcare are published online in the Austrian Medicinal Products Index.
Please enter a suffix *P* in the field “MA number” to create a result list. The product information (SmPC and PIL) can be found at the Austrian reference marketing authorisation. Therefore a new search with the name of the medicinal product or the MA number without suffix can be done.
