This page provides information on the European Medicines Agency's activities during the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, which will be taking place close to the Agency's offices in London.
The Agency will be working as usual during the games period, but travel to and from London is likely to be difficult in late June and in July.
Some of the Agency's meetings during this period are being cancelled, held virtually or held in the offices of medicines regulatory agencies elsewhere in the European Economic Area.
Attending oral explanations
Companies invited to attend for oral explanations at meetings held off-site will need to liaise with the Agency for detailed information on meeting venues.
The regulatory authorities in Member States have strict policies for allowing access to representatives of the pharmaceutical industry. Companies will need to supply lists of attendees in advance to the authority hosting the meeting, with only those representatives included on the list of attendees being permitted to enter the premises.
Company representatives will need to be accompanied at all times.
Electronic submission of applications
The Agency encourages applicant to use the eSubmission Gateway when submitting dossiers during the Olympic period. Companies can use the eSubmission Gateway to send centralised procedure submissions to the Agency in electronic common technical document (eCTD) format instead of sending CDs or DVDs via courier mail.
