Pharmaceuticals: drug approval dates in the UK and Europe
Where can I find drug approval dates for the UK?


The European Medicines Agency provides information on drug approvals in the UK and Europe: ​

  • EMA Annual Reports provides list of new medicines with marketing authorization date. See also for EMA Annual Reports for overview of the medicine market.
  • European Public Assessment Reports are full scientific assessment reports of medicines authorized at a European Union level. Use this to find information on medicines that have been granted and refused a marketing authorization or that have been suspended or withdrawn after being approved. The Agency does not evaluate all medicines currently in use in Europe. If you cannot find the medicine needed here, please visit the website of your national health authority.
