An update on cooperation in the life sciences industry: the European Commission’s framework

The European Commission has published a Temporary Framework Communication to provide guidance to companies that are cooperating to ensure the supply and distribution of essential products – including medicines and medical equipment – during the COVID-19 outbreak. The Communication sets out the criteria that the Commission will apply in assessing the legality of cooperation during the COVID-19 pandemic and provides that the Commission is available to issue “comfort letters” for specific cooperation projects. This Framework is in force until further notice.
