INFARMED hosted, last Thursday, the 103rd Meeting of the Heads of Medicines Agencies (HMA). The meeting was chaired by the president of INFARMED, Rui Santos Ivo, and was held under the scope of the Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
At the end of the virtual event, a Press Release was disclosed, listing the main topics discussed.
The initiative was attended by over 100 elements of different areas. The HMA is a network of the heads of the National Competent Authorities (NCA) whose organisations are responsible for the regulation of medicinal products for human and veterinary use in the European Economic Area.
The HMA co-operates with the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the European Commission in the operation of the European medicines regulatory network and it is a unique model for cooperation and worksharing on statutory as well as voluntary regulatory activities.
This event is part of a set of 20 meetings of several Committees and Working Groups that INFARMED will be holding during the next six months.
