For the professional authority which also takes part in the assessment (National Center for Epidemiology) the normative administration time is 15 days (important in procedures for immunobiological medicinal preparations). In the written request for the withdrawal (cancellation) of a marketing authorisation it is possible to set the day of withdrawal (cancellation to come into force). The concerned Marketing Authorisation Holder is being informed within 5 days by the National Institute of Pharmacy after the procedure having been initiated officially. The decision is reported by the authority in a resolution. This includes the following sentence: „The packaging units of the cancelled medicinal product having been put on the market may be marketed within the expiry date.”
