Meeting highlights from the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) 12-15 March 2012

News 16/03/2012

This page lists the opinions adopted at the March 2012 meeting of the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) and other important outcomes.

The new format allows users to view the main opinions adopted at the meeting, along with information on referral procedures, in a clear tabular format. Users can click on the links within the page to read individual press releases and more detailed information about the opinions.

The new format replaces the two PDF documents that used to list each meeting's outcome: the CHMP meeting highlights, published on the Friday following the meeting and the CHMP monthly report, published around a week later. The Agency will publish a new page following each month's CHMP meeting.

The Agency has gathered feedback from journalists and other stakeholders. It will make some changes to the format by April 2012.
