Under the governance of the ICH MedDRA Management Board, MedDRA is continuously enhanced to meet the evolving needs of all its users around the world. Sustainability of a high quality terminology needs an income stream and the ICH MedDRA Board has opted for a licencing model that provides access to the terminology free of charge to regulatory authority, non-profit, direct patient care provider, educational institutes and at a fair cost shared by its commercial users through an annual subscription fee.
