The success of the recent 14th International Conference of Drug Regulatory Authorities (ICDRA) held in Singapore from 30 November to 3 December was attested by the presence of 345 participants from over 90 agencies. In addition to the event, participants were invited to celebrate thirty years of ICDRAs. Both developed and developing country officials joined in confirming the value and impact of this forum to national, regional and international medicines regulation by contributing to seven plenaries and nineteen parallel workshops. The quality of the information offered and the lively discussion led to adoption of recommendations which regulators consider important in assuring the quality, safety and efficacy of medicines. These are set out below and on the following pages.
The 14th ICDRA was hosted by the Health Sciences Authority of Singapore in collaboration with the World Health Organization. The Conference continues to be a cornerstone of international harmonization of medicines regulation and is highly appreciated for the platform it provides in highlighting matters of urgency and relevance to an often difficult but vital sector of the health care system.
