Alltrials - write to your MEP

Write to your MEPs

23rd May 2013

A committee of MEPs will soon vote on proposals that could increase transparency of clinical trials. However, there are 350 lobbyists for the pharmaceutical industry at the European Parliament and MEPs are now hearing their arguments against transparency every day. We have until 29th May to make sure they hear our arguments.

The Environment, Public Health and Food Safety Committee of the European Parliament, which is made up of 67 MEPs from 22 countries, is currently scrutinising the Clinical Trials Regulation. On Wednesday 29th May they will vote on changes to the regulation. There are proposals on the table that could greatly increase clinical trial transparency and would mean that all clinical trials for medicines licensed in Europe would have to be registered and the results reported.

All 67 MEPs on the committee and their email addresses are in the table below. Please write to the MEPs from your country telling them your arguments and that all clinical trials need to be registered and the results reported. Let us know if you have written and if you get a response.

Here are some sample letters in EnglishSwedishGermanPortuguese Danish and Italian that supporters have kindly allowed us to share.
