HC Deb 01 February 1983 vol 36 c78W
Mrs. Dunwoody

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what common controls exist within the European Community over the quality of pharmaceutical products.

Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

Four European directives govern the marketing of proprietary medicinal products within the European Community. These are 65/65/EEC, 75/318/EEC, 75/319/EEC and 78/420/EEC, which require member states to be satisfied as to the quality of a medicinal product before granting a marketing authorisation.
