These electronic forms are designed to reflect and capture the same content as the paper-based application forms.
  • The paper-based application forms for medicinal products for human use are published and maintained in EudraLex Volume 2
  • The paper-based application forms for medicinal products for veterinary use are published and maintained in EudraLex Volume 6.
  • The electronic forms and their supporting technical documentation are  available below.
