EU and US reach a milestone....

15th July 2019

With the recognition by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of Slovakia, the European Union and the United States have now fully implemented the mutual recognition agreement (MRA) for inspections of manufacturing sites for certain human medicines in their respective territories.

Each year, EU national authorities and the FDA inspect many production sites of medicinal products in the EU, the US and elsewhere in the world, to ensure that these sites operate in compliance with good manufacturing practice (GMP). Under the MRA, EU and US regulators will now rely on each other’s inspections for human medicines in their own territories and hence avoid duplicative work. As a result of the MRA, both the EU and the US will be able to free up resources to inspect facilities in other countries.

Further information can be found on the EMA Website.
