1. If on 1st January 1995 there is in force in relation to a medicinal product for human use to which these Regulations apply a product licence granted under Part II of the Act, that product licence shall have effect from that date as if it were a marketing authorization granted under these Regulations.
2. Accordingly any right conferred or obligation imposed by these Regulations shall be conferred or imposed on the holder of such a product licence, except that the provisions of regulation 7(6) (which requires the holder of a marketing authorization to be established in the Community) and the provisions of Schedule 5 (labels) shall not apply.
3.—(1) Subject to sub-paragraph (2), any application for a product licence made before the date when these Regulations come into force but not then determined shall from that date be treated as an application for a marketing authorization, and the provisions of Schedule 2 shall apply accordingly.
(2) Where any act has been done in relation to an application to which sub-paragraph (1) applies before the date when these Regulations come into force, nothing in that sub-paragraph requires that act to be repeated.
