EMA Should Clarify Role in Collaboration on Non-EU Drugs, Officials Say

May 4, 2017

EMA officials met with delegates from European and African nations to discuss the issue in a recent workshop in Malta.

The EMA’s Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use said the agency should improve its communications relating to GMPs and inspection in dealing with the World Health Organization and regulatory bodies in target countries.

One way to reconcile different GMPs would be to append the WHOs Quality Information Summaries to CHMP medicine reports, the workshop concluded.
