    All stakeholders involved in the development, manufacture and/or commercialisation of advanced therapy medicinal products.  Comments from small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are particularly welcome.
  • Period of consultation
    From 23 July 2015 to 12 November 2015

    Article 5 of Regulation 1394/2007 of the European Parliament and of the Council on advanced therapy medicinal products and amending Directive 2001/83/EC requires the Commission to draw up guidelines on good manufacturing practice (“GMPs”) specific to advanced therapy medicinal products (“ATMPs”).
