Finnish Medicines Agency Fimea

Operating under the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health, the Finnish Medicines Agency Fimea regulates and develops the pharmaceutical sector, with the objective of promoting the health and safety of people in Finland.

Fimea is tasked with various licensing and supervision duties in the pharmaceutical sector, research and development, and producing information on medicines in order to improve pharmaceutical services and pharmacotherapy.

We currently employ around 250 people. Our personnel are highly educated: Three out of four Fimea employees have a university degree, and of these, one in three has a scientific postgraduate degree. The most common fields of study are Pharmacy, Medicine, Veterinary Medicine, Financial and Administrative Sciences and Law.

Fimea employees are typically specialists in their fields, and are involved in the assessment of the quality, safety and efficacy of medicinal products, or in pharmaceutical research, manufacture and supervision of the distribution chain.

Fimea offers an insight into developments in the pharmaceutical sector. We play an active role in the pharmaceutical sector both nationally and internationally. We are actively involved in the European Medicines Regulatory Network.

Work at Fimea is flexible and not tied to a specific location. We provide our staff with modern tools and a virtual working environment.
