Marco regulatorio de la Terapia Génica y Celular

La regulación de la investigación biomédica es compleja y está sujeta a continuas modificaciones. En los siguientes enlaces encontrarás información sobre diversos aspectos regulatorios a nivel español y europeo. Sin embargo, el único documento oficial al respecto es la versión impresa del Diario Oficial de la Comunidad Europea.

GMP Advice

While EMEA welcomes questions on its activities and the regulatory framework within which it operates, specific questions on the interpretation of GMP requirements should be addressed, ideally by the Qualified Person, directly to the relevant supervisory authority of the Member State in which the manufacturing authorisation holder is located. Manufacturers based in third countries should contact the authority supervising the authorised importer.
