 New Year – New you for E.U. pharmaceutical legislations?

Not quite. While legislative proposals such as the one for Substances of Human Origin (SoHOs) have reached an agreement that still needs to be voted on, others such as the general pharmaceutical legislation are under fierce debate. There are several legislative proposals at various stages including additionally the EMA fees, the European Health Data Space and actions to solve the medicines shortages situation being discussed by E.U. legislative bodies.
Bring some popcorn as we look at an overview of the status of each of these, legislative decision timeline as far as available and discuss the controversial topics being debated by E.U. legislative bodies.
For example, the pharmaceutical legislation received about 2.5k amendments for each the proposed directive and regulation. We will discuss the spread of opinions on some of the most contentious issues such as regulatory protection, transferable exclusivity vouchers and market launch requirements and how any adopted option could potentially impact pharmaceutical industry.
But there is more: The European Parliament is up for election in June this year.  How might this affect things?
