At OTCexperts we have a lot of knowledge and experience when it comes to changing the legal status of your medicinal product. We can support you to change it from a Prescription only medicine (POM), to a Pharmacist supervision (P) through to a General Sales List (GSL), where consumers are free to self select a treatment for their condition. The MHRA recently updated the  list of ‘approved reclassifications’. The list is updated every six months. We have extracted the changes below for ease of reference.
