Changes to the published format of approved medicinal product information


Please note that starting from 7 September 2022 the State Agency of Medicines is transitioning to PDF (.pdf) format instead of the previous MS Word (.docx or .doc) format when publishing approved package leaflets, summaries of product characteristics and labelling texts.

Due to the fact that the aforementioned document files on the Medicinal Product Register are opened using various devices, .doc file contents may be displayed incorrectly on the device screen, i.e. displayed differently or become illegible, leading to substantial misinterpretation of the product information. In order to decrease the risk of medicinal product errors and to ensure convenient access to officially approved information regarding medicines authorised in Latvia, from now on the information will be available in PDF (.pdf) format.
