§ 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.
