Supplementary Protection Certificates are of great importance to the pharmaceutical industry as a method of increasing the length of market exclusivity for successful medicines to compensate for delays in marketing a product which results from compliance with the regulatory requirements. Providing a comprehensive commentary to the Supplementary Protection Certifcate Regulations (the SPC Regulations), this practical handbook highlights the various issues and uncertainties in the SPC Regulations which have not only been illustrated by EU wide case law but by cases which currentlyremain undetermined.
