Report on the international API inspection programme 2011 - 2016

In April 2018, EMA published a report with an overview of the activities of the programme between 2011 and 2016.

The report shows that the programme has grown both in membership and sites of common interest during this period. The level of information shared between participants has increased and overall inspection coverage grew, benefiting global public health.

The participating authorities concluded that this programme is beneficial and agreed to continue their collaboration. They also made a series of proposals to further streamline day-to-day operations, such as improvements of the electronic platforms for information exchange and regular reviews of the programme deliverables.
