Summary of evidence and Expert Committee recommendations
The Expert Committee recommended the addition of a new strength of paracetamol oral liquid (120 mg / 5 mL) to the EML and EMLc, noting its wider global market availability than the currently listed 125 mg / 5 mL strength. The Committee considered that inclusion of the new strength would assist countries and procurement agencies in their efforts to make appropriate paediatric dose forms of paracetamol available through their national schemes and programmes.
