The HMPC is also currently inviting all interested parties to submit any scientific data that the Committee should consider at the periodic review of the following herbal medicinal products:
- Tiliae flos
- Origani dictamni herba
- Paulliniae semen
- Rhodiolae roseae rhizoma et radix
- Urticae radix

The publication of these calls is the first step in the procedure established by the committee so that adopted monographs remain up-to-date (scientific state of the art). The submission period for the scientific data submission is until the 30 June 2021.
At the same time, the Committee released the following monographs for public consultation:
- Herbal monograph on Hypericum perforatum L., herba (well-established and traditional use) 2nd Draft – Revision 1 => The adoption of the 2nd draft is now open for consultation. The period is from 31 March to 30 June 2021.
