Workshop on the evaluation of the Regulation for ’tiered’ pricing of medicines (EC 953/2003)

datum 15 juli 2015
organisatie Directoraat-generaal Handel (TRADE)

The provisional results of a study evaluating the functioning of Regulation 953/2003 on tiered pricing will be discussed at this workshop.

The Regulation intended to increase the availability of pharmaceuticals for the treatment of HIV/AIDs, tuberculosis and malaria in the poorest countries. It supported the sale of medicines in those countries at heavily discounted prices by offering protection against discounted medicines being re-imported into the EU. It is evaluated as part of the Commission’s regulatory fitness and performance programme.

More information on the Regulation

The provisional results of the study are available here. The executive summary of the study is available here.
