Medicines for human use under evaluation

Each month, the European Medicines Agency's (EMA) publishes an updated list of medicines for human use currently under evaluation by EMA’s Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) to obtain a marketing authorisation in the European Union (EU).

For information on treatments and vaccines for COVID-19, including those under evaluation by the CHMP:

The CHMP meets once per month. Its evaluations of marketing authorisation applications submitted through the centralised procedure provide the basis for authorisation of medicines in Europe.

Monthly lists of medicines under evaluation by the CHMP are available dating back to 2012. They contain the international non-proprietary names (INN) and therapeutic areas of innovative medicines. The INN contains only the active moiety for generic medicines and biosimilar medicines, with no information on salt, ester or derivative. The lists are available in Excel format from February 2021 to support data sorting and filtering. 

The CHMP's independent recommendations on medicine for human use are based on a comprehensive scientific evaluation of data. For information on how EMA evaluates medicines and the CHMP's role in the authorisation of medicines in the EU:
