UK Government Urged to Clarify How it Will Deal with EMA Post-Brexit

March 21, 2017

A House of Lords select committee has called on the UK government to clarify how it plans to cooperate with the EMA after the UK’s exit from the European Union. The agency currently employs 900 officials at its London headquarters, but may be relocated to an EU member state post-Brexit.

The committee advised the UK government to consider whether it intends to rely on EU agencies — including the EMA — post-Brexit and to decide the extent to which it plans to work with those agencies.
