European Medicines Agency

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) is a decentralised body of the European Union, with headquarters in London. Its main responsibility is the protection and promotion of public and animal health through the evaluation and supervision of medicinal products for human and veterinary use*.

The EMA is responsible for the scientific evaluation of applications for European marketing authorisation for medicinal products (centralised procedure). This procedure allows the marketing authorisation holder to market the medicinal product and make it available to patients and healthcare professionals throughout the EU on the basis of a single market authosisation. In the other cases, a national authorisation procedure needs to be carried out in each individual Member State**.
