Four members from Civil Society will be appointed: two members representing patients’ organisations, one member representing doctors’ organisations and one member representing veterinarians’ organisations. The term of office of the current members expires on 20 March 2016.

The Management Board is the European Medicines Agency’s governance body, with general responsibility for budgetary and planning matters.
