Call for candidates for e-PIL

03/04/2018

With the support of the Belgian and Luxembourg Competent Authorities, the pharmaceutical industry has launched the pilot project "e-PIL" in Belgian and Luxembourg hospitals for the conduct of which a derogation has been obtained from the European Commission.

In this pilot project, a selection of medicines on the Belgian and Luxembourg market will not be accompanied by their patient paper inserted leaflet (PIL), but this leaflet can be consulted online on trusted websites (e-PIL). This pilot project aims to demonstrate that the electronic leaflet is equivalent to the paper leaflet to provide information on the safe and effective use of medicines to patients and healthcare professionals.

A call for candidates to participate in this pilot is launched to the attention of the Belgian and Luxembourg marketing authorization holders from 3 April until 30 April 2018.
