The International Coalition of Medicines Regulatory Authorities elected the European Medicines Agency’s (EMA) executive director Guido Rasi as its new chair.
“When development, manufacture and distribution of medicines is global, we regulators must work together globally to prepare for new medicines and technologies and improve global oversight of the safety and quality of medicines. We owe this to patients around the world,” Rasi said.
The agency is a voluntary, executive-level, strategic coordinating, advocacy and leadership entity of regulatory authorities designed to address the current and emerging global regulatory and safety challenges.
