Estonia State Agency of Medicines
The Estonian Centre on Medicines was set up by the Ministry of Health in April 11, 1991, before the Estonian independence was restored. By creating the State Agency of Medicines (SAM) in 1993 the Government finalised the structure of the drug regulatory authorities in Estonia. Currently the SAM is an agency under the Ministry of Social Affairs. The SAM has 6 departments and over 90 employees. Our main office is in Tartu, but there is an office in Tallinn as well. The Director General is Katrin Kiisk.
