The MSSO provides different types of subscriptions based on the type of the organisation. MSSO subscriptions are for twelve months. During the renewal process, the current subscription type and level (if applicable) is reviewed to see if the subscription type is still accurate.
There are four different types of MedDRA MSSO subscriptions:
Regulatory Authority– all regulatory authorities are eligible to receive MedDRA at no charge. This includes the English version of each release of MedDRA as well as all available translations.
Non-Profit / Non-Commercial– are reserved for non-profit medical libraries, educational institutions, and direct patient care providers, i.e., hospitals for educational use or as a reference tool. In general, any non-commercial organisation conducting non-commercial work.
Commercial – are for commercial organisations (e.g., pharmaceutical companies, CROs). The rates vary based on the annual revenue (turnover) of the organisation.
System Developer– are reserved for organisations that develop software products that utilise MedDRA. The use of MedDRA by system developers is limited to software development and testing with MedDRA and not for providing MedDRA support services (e.g., coding, analysis, transmission of MedDRA coded data).
