File PDFCommon Position (EC) No 61/2003
The Council once more rejected the proposal of a compulsory version of ‘Territory specific rules’ for pre-clinical tests and clinical trials for homeopathic medicinal products not eligible for a special simplified registration in second reading. An extension of the routes of administration under the special simplified registration procedure was also rejected. The proposed amendment introducing a mutual recognition procedure for registered homeopathic medicinal products was only accepted after a compromise proposal (the Council took a negative stance towards a MR for HMP’s during earlier stages of the codecision, but found both Parliament and Commission on its way).
