Commissioner Dalli visits the European Medicines Agency in London

Today, Commissioner Dalli visits the European Medicines Agency (EMA) in London. On this occasion Commissioner Dalli will meet the Agency's new Executive Director Guido Rasi who was appointed in October 2011. The mission of Commissioner Dalli to the Agency is meant to contribute to the continued fruitful co-operation between the Commission and its Agency in the best interests of citizens in the EU. The Commission and the Medicines Agency share the great responsibility of ensuring that medicines authorised in the EU are safe and effective.

On the occasion of the Commissioner's visit, the European Commission is launching a video to explain to citizens the system of authorisation for all medicines circulating in the European Union.
