That a medicine is safe and effective when approved is not in itself sufficient for it to be used in practice. The quality of the actual manufacturing must be assured and all processes must be exhaustingly tested so that manufacture of the medicine is achieved in a manner that ensures the quality of the final product. The Swedish Medical Products Agency thus makes regular inspections of manufacturers and distributors. Other forms of supervision, establishing standards and advising, e.g. checking that animal experiments or clinical trials are carried out in an ethically and scientifically satisfactory manner, also form part of our operations.
