The proposed Regulation on Health Technology Assessment (HTA) covers new medicines and certain new medical devices, providing the basis for permanent and sustainable cooperation at the EU level for joint clinical assessments in these areas.
To meet the anticipated increase in submission of safety dossiers based on alternative (non-animal) methods and read-across models due to the EU animal testing ban for cosmetics, the Directorate General for Health and Food Safety, in consultation with the SCCS, has launched a Call for expression of interest to appoint experts who will assist the work of the SCCS. They will be appointed in their personal capacity as external experts to appropriate working groups of the SCCS.
Continuously open call.
