PRESS RELEASE BY THE PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARIAT FOR CONSUMER PROTECTION AND VALLETTA 2018: The Medicines Authority successfully implements a 2018 budgetary measure within the first three months of the new year

The Malta Medicines Authority organised a three-day workshop with The Organisation for Professionals in Regulatory Affairs (TOPRA) with the theme of ‘Innovative approaches to excellent regulatory sciences’, which dealt with EU regulatory affairs and procedures for medicines. The conference was attended by industry professionals, authority staff members, and members of TOPRA.

Over 70 participants attended the conference as well as a series of meetings which focused on chemical and pharmaceutical development, regulatory control of clinical trials, European procedures, as well as product labelling. This comes at a time when high quality regulatory sciences, which are steadily becoming a more essential part of the healthcare profession, are providing a high return on investment and are minimising risk and maximising effectiveness, for the benefit of patients.

Parliamentary Secretary for Consumer Protection and Valletta 2018 Deo Debattista addressed the conference and commented on the importance of these informative meetings, which also served as training sessions for the attendees.

Through this initiative, the Medicines Authority is successfully implementing a 2018 budgetary measure within the first three months of the new year, Debattista concluded.
