Medicines Classification Committee 59th agenda

By

29/09/2017. In this submission we provided comments on six agenda items. These included classification of codeine, hydrocortisone with aciclovir, penciclovir, meningococcal group B vaccine and cetirizine, and the principles of harmonisation. Our main focus in this submission was the potential reclassification of codeine. We were opposed to any classification that would reduce direct access to codeine through a pharmacist. We supported mandatory real-time monitoring of codeine to allow codeine to continue to be available through community pharmacy.
