European Commission: Transatlantic Administrative Simplification Action Plan – 2009 implementation report

Under the auspices of the Transatlantic Economic Council, on 28 November 2007 the European Commission hosted the Transatlantic Administrative Simplification Workshop which was co-chaired by the European Commission and the United States (U.S.) Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and organised in collaboration with the European Medicines Agency (EMEA) and the Heads of the EU National Medicines Agencies (HMA). The key objective was to identify opportunities for administrative simplification through transatlantic cooperation at the level of administrative practices and guidelines.
