Public consultation on HPRA Strategic Plan 2021-2025

Start date of consultation:        19 November 2019

Closing date of consultation:   13 December 2019

The HPRA wishes to seek input from stakeholders to help inform the next Strategic Plan for 2021-2025.

The HPRA’s current Strategic Plan 2016–2020 is coming to an end and we are beginning the development of the strategy for 2021-2025.  The next Strategic Plan will build on our achievements under the current plan, taking account of changes to the external context within which we regulate health products and allowing us to continue to meet our core responsibilities while developing our organisation and its resources to meet the challenges of the next 5 years and beyond.

As part of our preparations, we are inviting all our stakeholders to provide us with your views on the issues you feel that we should address in the Strategic Plan 2021-2025. A short document for this is available here: Strategic Plan 2021-2025 Consultation Feedback Form

We welcome feedback by 13 December to strategy@hpra.ie

A response document will be published providing a general overview of the comments received.

This consultation complies with government policy on public consultation, as described in the document ‘Consultation Principles and Guidance’.
