2.1 Publication of Invitation for Expression of Interest (EOI)
WHO will publish an invitation widely in the international press and on the web pages at regular intervals when necessary for specific groups of products, to request manufacturers to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to supply pharmaceutical products to UN agencies. The invitation should be open and transparent, inviting all manufacturers to submit the EOI for the drugs listed in the invitation.
Manufacturers should submit their EOI with the relevant information requested, before the date specified by WHO.
WHO will receive the EOI and record the receiving of EOI from each manufacturer. Guidelines developed for the submission of the Dossiers shall then be sent to the interested manufacturers.
