Re-organisation of the JRC: IRMM becomes Directorate F – Health, Consumers and Reference Materials

1 July 2016

On 1st of July 2016, an internal re-organisation of the JRC took effect.
This re-organisation has as purpose to improve the services provided to our customers, stakeholders and other interested parties.

The main change is that 'Institute' names will no longer be used and is replaced by the terminology 'Directorate'.  In addition, the former Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements (IRMM) based in Geel, Belgium and the former Institute for Health and Consumer Protection (IHCP) based in Ispra, Italy are merged into the new JRC Directorate.F – Health, Consumers and Reference Materials, with reference material related activities concentrated in the Reference Materials Unit. This means, for reference material related activities, the new name of the organisation is

European Commission, Joint Research Centre (JRC)
Directorate F - Health, Consumers and Reference Materials 
Reference Materials Unit

There is no change in the postal address or telephone numbers. 
This re-organisation will have no impact on the services you received from both former institutes.
