Monday, October 04, 2010
The pilot project of joint scientific advice meetings arranged by the Dental and Pharmaceutical Benefits Agency (TLV) and the Medical Products Agency (MPA), ended June 30th 2010. The project will be evaluated by the MPA, the TLV and the companies involved during autumn 2010. It is still possible to apply for joint scientific advice until a conclusion has been reached and published regarding the continuation of the project.
The TLV and the MPA received inquiries from the pharmaceutical industry regarding the possibility of arranging joint scientific advice meetings. In the light of these inquiries, a pilot project of joint meetings attended by representatives from both authorities has been conducted during the period September 1st 2009 to June 30th 2010. The aim of providing joint scientific advice is to fulfil the Government’s instructions to the agencies to contribute to a rational and cost-effective use of pharmaceutical products as well as meeting inquiries from the pharmaceutical industry.
