Updated monthly, the Parallel Distribution register give information on parallel distribution notices, which have been checked by the European Medicines Agency. The register promotes transparency about parallel distribution notices, and increases information which is available for national authorities, holders of marketing authorisation, parallel distributors, and wholesalers.
The database contains “instances when authorities have invoked, planned to invoke, or have been asked to invoke a TRIPS flexibility for public health reasons, in particular access to medicines.” In particular the database includes compulsory licensing, patent exceptions, parallel import, and the Least Developed Country transition provisions.
