WHO listing for regulators



The World Health Organization has designated the European Medicines Regulatory Network, a group of institutions that include the European Medicines Agency, as a WHO Listed Authority. The list, which was launched in March 2022, essentially gives the WHO access to the expertise of qualified regulators across the globe to help it improve the availability of safe and effective vaccines and medicines to people across geographies. This includes conducting evidence-based medicine assessments in situations where this expertise might not otherwise be available.
