Ireland has stepped up its bid to host the EMA with the official announcement being delivered and reiterated by Minister of Health, Simon Harris. The next step will now see Dublin scrutinized closely, particularly in regard to its regulatory capability. Ireland’s strength lies in the close relationship that the Health Products Regulatory Authority (HPRA) has established with the EMA and the wider network of medicines regulatory agencies throughout the EU. The HPRA has been an integral part of this regulatory system since the EMA was founded more than two decades ago.
