The mission of the Irish Medicines Board (IMB) is
‘to protect and enhance public and animal health through the regulation of medicines, medical devices and healthcare products’
The objective of the IMB is to ensure in so far as possible, consistent with current medical and scientific knowledge, the quality, safety and efficacy of medicines available in Ireland and to participate in systems designed to do that throughout the European Union. Before a medicine can be authorised for use, an application must be made to the IMB and this must contain all of the necessary data supporting its quality, safety and efficacy.
Products and services
The IMB is committed to the implementation and maintenance of a documented quality management system which is continually improved. The system is based on the requirements of the legislation, the regulatory system and ISO 9000:2000; it also takes into account guidelines, standards and best practices from Irish and international organisations.
