On 16 February 2021 Alejandro Ernesto Svarch-Pérez was appointed as the new head of the Federal Commission for the Protection Against Sanitary Risks (COFEPRIS), the Mexican regulatory agency.
According to COFEPRIS, Svarch-Pérez has experience in international medical affairs and administrative matters resulting from his participation in Doctors Without Borders and roles as director general of international relations at the Ministry of Health and national medical coordinator at the National Welfare Institute, among others.
With the change of leadership at COFEPRIS, various new sources of information have become available for regulated companies and the public in general – including:
The addition of the new communication channels as well as COFEPRIS's intention to provide data and facilitate and simplify the information provided to the public constitutes a milestone in the regulator's behaviour (at least for the past four years).
From a technological point of view and considering the impact of COVID-19 on the authorities' activities and communication, these new tools show COFEPRIS's inclination to adapt to a new era and develop new methods to reach the Mexican population and regulated agents.
These initiatives revive COFEPRIS's image and provide hope to the regulated industries and life sciences lawyers.
