European Commission launches a public consultation on the Paediatric Regulation

The European Commission (EC) has launched a public consultation to get views and feedback from stakeholders, to support the Commission in drafting its second report on the Paediatric Regulation after nearly ten years of implementation. The consultation is open until 20 February 2017. Stakeholders should send their comments directly to the EC by accessing the consultation page.

The feedback received will form an integral part of the Commission’s final report assessing the impact of the Paediatric Regulation on public health and the pharmaceutical industry, which is expected to be published in 2017.

The Paediatric Regulation came into force in the European Union (EU) on 26 January 2007. Its objective is to improve the health of children in Europe by facilitating the development and availability of age-appropriate medicines for children, and by increasing available information on the use of medicines for children.
