The European Directorate for the Quality of Medicines & HealthCare (EDQM) is happy to arrange visits to its premises upon request from groups of visitors with a professional interest in our work.

We primarily organise visits for educational or scientific groups, such as students studying scientific disciplines (e.g. pharmacy, chemistry, biochemistry) or for professionals working in the field of quality control of medicines. A visit consists of a short talk on the history, current mission and activities of the EDQM, and a tour of the technical and/or laboratory areas.

Visits last about 1-1.5 hours and are open to groups with a maximum of 20-25 participants. Visitors must be at least 15 years of age. Visits are carried out in English or French and are free of charge.

Arrange a visit


If you are interested in organising a visit to the EDQM for your group, please contact us at least two months prior to the preferred visiting date, so we can ensure availability of meeting rooms and staff.

Visits can be tailored to a group's particular requirements or interests. It is important to specify your interests in the visit request form.

Please read the relevant sections of the “Information for Event Participants” document to prepare your group visit.

We do not provide any reimbursements related to visits. Groups are responsible for covering all expenses related to the visit.
