COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) 2024/848

of 14 March 2024

amending Council Regulation (EC) No 297/95 as regards the adjustment of the fees of the European Medicines Agency to the inflation rate with effect from 1 April 2024

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 297/95 of 10 February 1995 on fees payable to the European Agency for the Evaluation of Medicinal Products (1), and in particular Article 12, fifth paragraph, thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

In accordance with Article 67(3) of Regulation (EC) No 726/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council (2), the revenue of the European Medicines Agency consists in particular of a contribution from the Union and fees paid by undertakings to that Agency. Regulation (EC) No 297/95 lays down the categories and levels of such fees.

(2)

The fees should be reviewed and updated by reference to the inflation rate of 2023 as published by the Statistical Office of the European Union (3). The inflation rate in the Union was 3,4 % in 2023.

(3)

For the sake of simplicity, the adjusted levels of the fees should be rounded to the nearest EUR 100.

(4)

Regulation (EC) No 297/95 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(5)

For reasons of legal certainty, this Regulation should not apply to valid applications which are pending on 1 April 2024.

(6)

In accordance with Article 12 of Regulation (EC) No 297/95, the update is to be made with effect from 1 April 2024. It is therefore appropriate that this Regulation enters into force as a matter of urgency and applies from that date,
