Therapeutic Action Group (TAG)

The Therapeutic Action Group (TAG) was created in January 2009 and is composed of EURORDIS volunteers in the scientific committees and working party at the European Medicines Agency (EMA). These committees include the Committee for Orphan Medicinal Products (COMP), Paediatric Committee (PDCO), Committee for Advanced Therapies (CAT) and the Patients’ and Consumers’ Working Party (PCWP)

These patients’ representatives dedicate their time, experience and expertise to the task of evaluating dossiers of medicinal products requesting orphan designation, evaluation for use in paediatric patients, evaluation of advanced therapies, as well as ensuring accurate, transparent and available information to patients on authorised medicinal products.

A monthly report of activities of EMA Committees and EURORDIS’ patients’ representatives in these Committees is produced and disseminated to all members of the TAG, EURORDIS Task Forces, EURORDIS Summer School alumni and EURORDIS’ Board.
