We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The Joint Research Centre joined forces with the European Directorate for the Quality of Medicines and Healthcare (EDQM) to develop reference materials needed for the determination of elements in medicinal products. These reference materials will ensure that EU citizens have access to safe and reliable medicinal products.
