Clinical use of mifepristone as an EC?

I am currently editing a compendium of sexual health information for a sexual health counseling organization.

New content includes information about Ella, the Ulipristal acetate EC. While looking at articles on Ella, I noticed that there had been some studies showing that mifepristone, currently used for medical abortion, is also as effective as Plan B in prevent pregnancy if taken within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse.

Wikipedia alludes to an EC usage of mifepristone, but it doesn't say if it's actually used for that purpose in practice.

Does anyone know if any countries allow on-label usage of mifepristone for EC?

Thanks a heap!
