Heads of Medicines Agencies
The Heads of Medicine Agencies (HMA) is a network of the heads of the national marketing authorisation agencies for human and veterinary medicinal products in the European Economic Area (EEA). Its aim is to harmonise national activities, particularly in connection with marketing authorisation and the approval of clinical trials, via a European network.
The President of the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut (PEI) is involved in the HMA network. In addition, the secretariat of the HMA is permanently based at the PEI.
