Database on the Classification of Medicines as Regards their Supply
The Melclass Database is hosted by the European Directorate for the Quality of Medicines and HealthCare (EDQM) and is supervised by the Committee of Experts on the Classification of Medicines as Regards their Supply (CD-P-PH/PHO).
The Melclass Database contains the recommendations that the Committee of Experts CD-P-PH/PHO issues annually to National Competent Authorities on the classification of medicines and their supply conditions (prescription/non-prescription status).
The Melclass Database also contains national information about the classification status and supply conditions of medicines in the same European countries (Council of Europe Member States parties to the Convention on the Elaboration of a European Pharmacopoeia). National information about the classification and supply conditions of medicines is provided by the CD-P-PH/PHO Member States’ delegates and is updated on a regular basis.
