European experts

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) maintains a public list containing details on European experts who can be involved in the Agency's work in the context of the authorisation, supervision and maintenance of medicinal products for human or veterinary use.

These European experts serve as members of the Agency's scientific committees, working parties and other groups, and provide scientific expertise to the Agency's activities or perform compliance inspections on behalf to the Agency. These experts fall within the scope of the policy on the handling of competing interests of scientific committees’ members and experts.

They can be nominated by Member States or by the Agency itself and are made available by the national competent authorities of the European Economic Area, as part of working together in the European medicines regulatory network.

The Agency requires these experts to sign a declaration of interests (DoI) every year, to ensure that they do not have any financial or other interests in the pharmaceutical industry that could affect their impartiality. Experts can only be involved in EMA's activities once the Agency has assigned their DoIs an interest level on a scale of 1-3, depending on whether they have no (interest level 1), indirect (interest level 2) or direct (interest level 3) interests in the pharmaceutical industry and assessed the declared interests to determine their level of involvement. The Agency also requires these experts to submit an up-to-date curriculum vitae (CV) when signing the DoI. For more information see Handling of competing interests. Please also see the specific privacy statement regarding the Experts database and the handling of competing interests of scientific committees’ members and experts.

The list contains each experts' annual DoI, with the assigned interest level, and CV. It only includes experts who have submitted an up-to-date password-protected electronically signed DoI.

EMA removes from the list the experts whose DoI is older than a year or unsigned (so called 'amber experts') until they submit an up-to-date signed DoI.

Users can browse the list in two ways:

  • Browse A-Z: searches by the first letter of the expert's family name.
  • Browse by country: searches by the nominating authority in the Member States. Experts nominated by the Agency are listed under 'European Union'.

On request, EMA makes publicly available details of the specific areas of expertise and previous declarations of interests of individual experts. Please submit requests via Send a question to EMA.
