You can search for basic information on medicines intended for humans and animals in the Medicine search service. The service includes information on valid and cancelled marketing authorisations in Finland.

Since 1964, marketing authorisations have been granted in Finland, and all valid marketing authorisations are found in the service. For cancelled marketing authorisations, the data can be found from 1982 onwards. The information content of the service is updated once a day from Fimea's pharmaceutical database. The service can also be used to read the summary of product characteristics (SPC) and package leaflet (PIL, PL).

In the FimeaWeb pharmaceutical product information can be retrieved according to the name of the medicinal product, the active substance, the ATC code or the marketing authorisation holder, and the date on which the marketing authorisation for the medicinal product was granted or cancelled. Medicine search also shows possible disorders in the availability of the product and its suitability for older people (Medicine75+).
