    Jevgeni Ossinovski, the Minister of Health and Labour, appointed Kristin Raudsepp as the Director General of the Agency of Medicines as proposed by the Selection Board of Top Civil Service Executives. Raudsepp’s third term of office begins on 1 January 2017.

    Kristin Raudsepp has graduated from the University of Tartu, Faculty of Medicine, specialising in general practice. In the years 1991–1994, she worked as a doctor-intern at the Tartu University Hospital. Raudsepp has worked in the Agency of Medicines since 1994. As from 1999, she was the Deputy Director General in the duties of the Director General and as from 2002, has been the Director General of the Agency of Medicines. She has been either the leader or a member of many international working teams and has represented Estonia at many international conferences and discussion forums.

    “I am glad that the work of the State Agency of Medicines is recognized and that I have the opportunity to continue as its head. The regulation of medicines has an important role in protecting public health and the challenges are complex, but exciting as well. We will continue solving challenges and thus contributing into development of the area of medicines in both Estonia and internationally – a strong organisation with experienced staff has a leading role in it,” said Kristin Raudsepp after being appointed.

    The Selection Board of Top Civil Service Executives, which works at the Government Office, announced an open competition for finding a new Director General for the Agency of Medicines this September.
