Adopted codifed version of Council Regulation 1768/92 now published

Last year, we posted a short piece on the proposed codification of the Council Regulation 1768/92 concerning supplementary protection certificates for medicinal products. The proposed text was finally adopted by the European Parliament on 21 October 2008 and the full codified Regulation was recently published in the Official Journal of the European Union.

Readers can get a copy of the codifed regulation here.

Thanks to Martijn de Lang for pointing this out.
