unstar this property answer text <p>Any change to the expiry date of a medicine requires an independent review of the stability study by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) or the European Medicine Agency in consultation with the MHRA. The MHRA is the Government agency responsible for ensuring that medicines and medical devices work and are acceptably safe.</p><p> </p><p>Companies can and often do extend the shelf life of their medicines once the product is on the market and additional stability data become available. The MHRA is not able to insist on lengthy shelf lives considering the time needed to complete stability studies as to do so would create additional delays with bringing new medicines to the market. It is not possible however to extend the expiry date of all medicines unilaterally in the absence of supporting stability data.</p> more like this
