DThe Project and Portfolio Management Office (PPMO) Coordination supported several projects with different objectives selected by the Executive Council.
The main objective of these projects was to comply with legal requirements. Many projects prepared our agency for new European legislations such as Regulation (EU) 2019/6 on veterinary medicinal products, Regulation (EU) 2017/745 on medical devices and Regulation (EU) 2017/746 on in vitro diagnostic medical devices.
Other projects have been launched purely on the initiative of our agency and aim to improve our services to the public. An example of such a project is the FarmaStatus platform, which informs citizens of the availability of medicinal products in Belgium. It also allows those involved in the medicinal product circuit (from the producer to the pharmacist) to inform the FAMHP of the availability of products. Another project is the plan to allow patients or healthcare professionals to report adverse reactions during vaccination campaigns against COVID-19. Various projects have also been set up on the evolution of technologies and the improvement of digitalisation of our activities. However, it is difficult to categorise individual PPMO projects according to these objectives as the vast majority of them address more than one objective.
