    Deputy director general of Ravimiamet Alar Irs speaks at the International Conference of Drug Regulatory Authorities (ICDRA), held in Singapore Nov 30 to Dec 30. Dr Irs addresses the value of inter-agency collaboration for the countries of limited size and resources. Dr Irs also chairs a session on advertising control.

    The ICDRA meeting is organised by the WHO in co-operation with the Health Sciences Authority of Singapore (HSA). The regular meetings date back to 1980 and the Singapore conference is already 14th global meeting of the drug regulators.

    Dr Irs explained that the regulatory model of the EU, based on wide co-operation and mutual trust is an example for many regions and the experience of a small country of restricted resources may prove useful for countries facing similar circumstances in other parts of the world.
