EMA releases substances data on its website

From 12/04/2022 onward, EMA is publishing the non-confidential substances data from their SMS system. Each substance will have a flag to indicate whether or not this substance was cleansed. The data will be published on a daily basis, on the EMA SPOR portal, in CSV format. For the team working in UNICOM WP2, this means that the results of the tremendous efforts by the Substance Validation Group members will finally become usable by the outside world.
