Committee on Herbal Medicinal Products publishes its meeting agenda for the first time

News 16/09/2013

The European Medicines Agency has published the PDF icon agenda of a Committee on Herbal Medicinal Products (HMPC) meeting for the first time today.

The Agency will publish the minutes of the meeting, which is taking place on 16 and 17 September 2013, once they have been adopted at the next HMPC meeting in November.

This is the latest initiative that the Agency has undertaken as part of its comprehensive approach to improve transparency. In 2012, the Agency started to systematically publish the agendas and minutes of its scientific Committees, starting with the Paediatric Committee (PDCO), the Pharmacovigilance Risk Assessment Committee (PRAC) and the Committee for Orphan Medicinal Products (COMP).

The Agency is planning to start publishing the agendas and minutes of its remaining three Committees, the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP), the Committee for Advanced Therapies (CAT) and the Committee for Medicinal Products for Veterinary Use (CVMP), by the end of 2013.
