Industry Involvement

In establishing its systems and processes, SMC has worked collaboratively with the Association of British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) on behalf of the pharmaceutical industry. SMC and ABPI have fostered a strong relationship and ABPI continues to offer commitment to the process, facilitating the sourcing of cross-industry representation on both the New Drugs Committee (NDC) and SMC.

The SMC User Group Forum  comprises representatives of the pharmaceutical industry and includes people with hands-on experience of health technology issues from both ABPI and non-ABPI member companies. The User Group Forum meet quarterly with representatives of SMC to identify, address and resolve process issues relating to the work of the SMC.
