The European Medicines Agency (EMA) website presents information on regulatory topics in the three main stages of the medicinal product lifecycle, to help users find information as easily as possible.
The navigation menu contains three main sections corresponding to the key medicinal product lifecycle stages:
Each main section provides an overview on a landing page, with sub-topics in the sub-menu in alphabetical order.
Regulatory information on herbal products is in a separate section, as these products are regulated differently in Europe.
Some regulatory topics span the product lifecyle. Entry pages on these transversal topics are in this overview section, in the sub-menu in alphabetical order:
- Advanced therapies
- Biosimilar medicines
- Data on medicines (ISO IDMP standards)
- Orphan designation
- Paediatric medicines
- Public health threats
- Support for early access
- Supporting SMEs
Some of these entry pages direct users to relevent content in the product lifecycle sections.
