Sections 7 and 8 of the SmPC have been updated with new Marketing Authorisation Holder (MAH) details following approval of a transfer application to change the MAH from Boehringer Ingelheim Ltd, UK to Boehringer Ingelheim International GmbH, Germany. This change comes as a direct consequence of Brexit to ensure that the MAH for the Irish product remains within the EU following the UK’s departure.

 Section 9 has been updated to include the date of authorisation of the new licence, 01/03/2019. Consequently the details in section 10, date of revision of the text, were deleted.
