New judicial decisions at odds with EMA’s efforts to allow access to documents on medicines
The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has appealed two interim orders by the President of the General Court of the European Union (EU) to suspend the release of documents requested by third parties under Regulation (EC) no. 1049/2001, the so-called “Transparency Regulation”.
