This page allows you to find information on opinions and decisions adopted by the European Medicines Agency's (EMA) Paediatric Committee (PDCO) on Paediatric Investigation Plans (PIPs) including deferrals and waivers. 

A PIP is a medicine development plan aimed at ensuring the necessary data are obtained through studies in children to support the medicine's authorisation for use in children. The plan is submitted by a pharmaceutical company to the PDCO, which is responsible for agreeing or refusing the plan and for publishing an opinion with its decision.
