Foreign country packaging in Latvia

In accordance with normative acts regarding the procedure for labelling of medicinal products and requirements for package leaflets, the labelling and package leaflet of medicinal products imported in Latvia must contain information in the state language. Exceptions for distribution of medicinal products in Latvia may be made in situations where the marketing authorisation holder or wholesaler is unable to ensure availability of information in the state language. Please see the attached flow-chart reflecting steps that companies must take in order to receive Agency’s permit to distribute medicinal products in such cases.

Please note that the flow-chart is informative in nature, and compliance with normative acts will be assessed individually in each case.
