European Medicines Agency
The drug regulatory agency for the European Union, which is located in London. The EMA is responsible for the scientific evaluation of medicines developed by pharmaceutical companies for use in the EU.
WHO therefore joins the European Agency for the Evaluation of Medicines (EMEA) as the only other organization that makes such reports publicly accessible through its quality assurance programme, with the only difference being that WHO will also provide reports on generic medicines.
