UK bio industry receives support for post-Brexit coordination of medicines regulation

The UK BioIndustry Association is celebrating getting a public commitment from government ministers via a letter to the Financial Times calling for post Brexit co-operation with the EU on medicines regulation.

The Association’s CEO, Steve Bates, described this as the 'first step to a sensible approach to Brexit for our sector', which 'recognises the negative impact in areas like falsified medicine, pharmacovigilance and infectious disease control that a cliff edge Brexit would cause on both sides of the channel.'
