Spännande dag imorgon – miljömöten på LIF hela dagen

SWEDISH SUMMARY: Imorgon fredag har vi flera spännande möten på LIF. Under förmiddagen har vi först ett möte tillsammans med Läkemedelsverket där vi diskuterar möjliga konsekvenser av de svenska miljömålen gällande läkemedel i miljön, därefter träffas vi som arbetar med att utveckla indikatorer för Nationella läkemedelsstrategins miljöinitiativ. På eftermiddagen har sedan LIF:s Expertgrupp Miljö möte. Jag ser fram emot intressanta diskussioner!

I am looking forward to several interesting meetings tomorrow at LIF (the association of the research-based pharmaceutical industry). In the morning we will first meet Swedish MPA and discuss potential consequences of the Swedish national environmental objectives concerning pharmaceuticals in the environment (PiE). Examples of those objectives are to bring the environmental risk assessments (ERAs) in to the risk/benefit evaluation (i.e. the authorization process of pharmaceuticals) and the inclusion of environmental standards to GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices). As you know since previous blog posts, I have concerns in relation to those objectives. We must never ever forget that patient access to valuable medicines is paramount! You also know that I strongly believe that industry’s Eco-Pharmaco Stewardship proposal (see for instance the blog post from Sept 12) will bring the environmental benefits we are all looking for.

Then before lunch I will meet with the group developing environmental indicators for the National Pharmaceutical Strategy. We will both look into the work already done on quality assuring monitoring results on pharmaceutical occurance in the Swedish environment, and discuss additional indicators for future development.

And then after lunch I will meet with LIF’s Expert Group Environment. I of course expect very interesting discussions there as well!

Looking forward to tomorrow!
