Anyone who uses medicines should be able to trust them. That is what the MEB is working on each and every day, in the Netherlands and Europe. We assess medicines to determine whether they can be placed on the market, monitor the adverse reactions and risks, and promote the proper use of medicines: that is the core of our work.
The MEB is an independent authority that regulates the quality, effects and safety of medicines and promotes the proper use of medicines for the right patient. Our work involves authorisation of medicines and surveillance of their safety and effectivity, both in the Netherlands and, together with our European colleagues, across Europe.
We work with society and for society. Our processes are transparent, and we work in direct partnership with patients, doctors, pharmacists and scientists. We also initiate and promote the sharing of knowledge, from scientific research to consumer information. All of this means that we make a vitally important contribution to the welfare of everyone who uses medicines, whether they do so occasionally or daily.
Our contribution to the project
We will provide data and research reports on patients’ information needs and demonstrate how the development of electronic product information (ePI) from a reliable source will optimise the entire medicinal product information life cycle and can be applied to realise user-centric solutions.
