To the attention of interested persons
The NAMMD has the pleasure to notify all its stakeholders on receipt of the final assessment reports of the Agency’s audit in the context of the HMA/EMA Joint Audit Program. The audit was conducted during 17-21 October 2016, together with the audit scheduled by the competent authority of Canada, as a state with which the EU has signed a Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA), in view of assessment of the legislation implemented in Romania and of the GMP inspection system observed by the NAMMD, as a national competent authority in the field of the medicinal product for human use. Two auditors on behalf of the FDA (the US competent authority) have participated in this audit, as observers, and have surveyed the specific objectives established for the pharmaceutical sector, within the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership.
The final assessment reports received from Health Canada (the Canadian authority) confirms the conclusion of an equivalence between the GMP-related national legislation and the GMP-related Canadian legislation, as well as between the inspection systems in this field. This is a result of the NAMMD activity and, by reciprocal recognition of GMP inspections, represents not only the reaffirmation of the efforts of NAMMD specialists, but also an access of Romanian medicinal product manufacturers to the Canadian market.
