EMA inspections will cost manufacturers more than €20,000 after the regulator raised its fees for the new financial year.
On April 1 a 3.1 per cent increase to European Medicines Agency (EMA) fees raised the payment for an inspection to €20,100 (€26,800). Facilities outside the European Union must cover inspector travel costs too.
The EMA increases its fees in line with the rate of inflation as published in the Official Journal of the European Union. Applications received by March 31 will pay the old, lower fee of €19,500.
