Brexit end of transition - Medicines regulation in NI

The UK Government ramps up preparations for the end of the Brexit Transition Period.

For those of you who are impacted by the Medicines regulations in Northern Ireland, you will be interested to know of the UK Government announcement on 5 November 2020. The Ireland/Northern Ireland Specialised Committee agreed that an approach had been reached on a phased process for implementing medicines regulation in Northern Ireland up to 31 December 2021. This provides the additional time needed for businesses to prepare in relation to batch testing, importation and Falsified Medicines Directive requirements.

The full detail of the announcement can be found via this link but it is important to note that it states: “The UK plans to set out guidance to businesses on these issues where relevant shortly”.
