Terms and Conditions

The electronic Medicines Compendium (eMC) provides access to up to date, easily accessible information about medicines licensed for use in the UK. The collection has more than 10,600 documents, all of which have been checked and approved by either the UK or European government agencies which license medicines. These agencies are the UK Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) and the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

eMC covers three types of documents:

  • Summaries of Product Characteristics (known as SPCs or SmPCs)
  • Patient Information Leaflets (known as PILs, Package Leaflets or PLs)
  • Risk Minimisation Materials (RMMs)
