Implementation of the Protocol to Eliminate Illicit Trade in Tobacco Products, including tobacco track and trace systems, is not a specific area of focus for the FCTC 2030 project. However, several FCTC 2030 countries have joined the Protocol. The Secretariat of the WHO FCTC is encouraging all countries that are Parties to the WHO FCTC to also join the Protocol.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Currently, rare diseases are defined as conditions affecting no more than five in 10,000 people in the European Union. The new European Clinical Trial Regulation (Regulation (EU) No 536/2014) will introduce an ‘ultra-rare’ condition and states that clinical trials for the development of orphan medicinal products and those of medicines affecting no more than one person in 50,000 in the EU (ultra-rare diseases) should be fostered, and in such areas, a rapid yet in-depth assessment is of particular importance. The new clinical trials regulation is expected to be implemented in the EU in late 2020. The Government has confirmed that United Kingdom law will remain aligned with the parts of the new EU clinical trials Regulation that are within the UK’s control.</p> more like this
