EMA to Poll UK Drugmakers on Brexit Readiness

Jan. 31, 2018

The European Medicines Agency is surveying drugmakers in the United Kingdom on their preparedness for the UK’s exit from the European Union.

The survey aims to identify which drugmakers are most likely to need assistance during the transition and help the EMA and European Commission allocate resources. More than a third of centrally authorized products on the EU are manufactured by companies in the UK.
