View summaries of risk management plans (RMPs) for approved medicines

The risk management plan (RMP) is a mandatory part of the marketing authorisation documents of a medicinal product and is updated throughout the entire life cycle of a medicinal product.

The published RMP Summary is a part of the RMP and describes the safety profile of a drug and lists the measures envisaged to further investigate and monitor the risks and to prevent or minimise them.

By publishing the summaries of RMPs, the Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM) informs you as a user, for example as a

  • Patientin und Patient
  • Caregiver
  • Doctor,
  • pharmacist or pharmacist
  • Representatives of the health sector.

The RMP summaries are published on the portal for drug information of the federal and state governments (online platform PharmNet.Bund) in German and English. On its website, the BfArM publishes a monthly updated list of preparations for which an RMP summary has already been published in the PharmNet.Bund.

The RMP summaries supplement the summaries of the public assessment reports (PAR) on medicinal products as well as the package information and prescribing information, which are also publicly available in PharmNet.Bund.
