Members will be interested in this email reminder received from Dr Marie-Hélène Pinheiro of the European Medicines Agency regarding Brexit and EU rules for batch testing of medicinal products.

Dear Industry Stakeholders, 

Further to the publication on 21st  February 2019 of the note on the “Withdrawal of the United Kingdom and EU rules for batch testing of medicinal products, where conditions and deadlines for MAHs which continue to rely on quality control testing performed in the United Kingdom for a limited period of time after the UK becomes a third country were set, we would like to remind you that MAHs should use the remaining time to complete their preparations so that by 1 January 2020 all batch testing facilities are fully transferred to the EU27/EEA and the necessary regulatory submissions are completed

Any specific MAHs implementation queries on the above can be sent to [email protected] 

With kind regards, 

Dr Marie-Hélène Pinheiro
European Medicines Agency
