A formulation approved both for use in the eye/ear is classified in S03, while formulations only licensed for use in the eye or the ear are classified in S01 and S02, respectively.
Small amounts of antiseptics in otological preparations do not influence the classification, e.g. benzalconium.
See also S03 - Ophthalmological and otological preparations.
