Author headshot image Posted by , Partner

With the end of the Brexit transition period fast approaching it is becoming more and more urgent for businesses in the medical sector to prepare for the transition period coming to an end. It is a sector, where many of the rules stem from EU regulation, which makes it even more important for businesses to prepare.

To this end the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has produced a set of guidance notes, which explain the rules in relation to:

  1. Clinical Trials
  2. Devices
  3. Licensing
  4. Importing and exporting
  5. IT systems
  6. Pharmacovigilance and
  7. Paediatrics

The rules are quite complex and businesses this sector should consider how the end of the transition period may affect them and plan for the effects. The guidance can be found here.
