Revision of the EU Pharmaceutical Legislation - What To Expect

In the European Union (EU), the General Pharmaceutical Legislation, Orphan Regulation, and Paediatric Regulation are under revision, with numerous changes – big and small – proposed by the European Commission. These legal revisions, if adopted, will have major impacts on pharmaceutical companies doing business in the EU.

King & Spalding will host a one-hour webinar to discuss fundamental changes that the EU Commission proposes to bring to the current legal regimes and their implications. Topics for discussion will include:

  • New regulatory exclusivities and incentives, including data exclusivity, orphan exclusivity, pediatric exclusivity, and vouchers for antimicrobials
  • Increased requirements for environmental risk assessment (ERA)
  • New requirements for critical medicinal products/shortages
  • Features to streamline the approval process and support innovation
  • Pediatric investigations plans, waivers, and deferrals
