Brexit stakeholder meeting - 31st August 2017

News Category: Regulatory news

Date: 24/08/2017

Following the UK’s triggering of Article 50 to leave the European Union, the HPRA, together with medicines agencies in Europe, is making preparations to ensure that we continue to deliver on our patient and animal health remit even if the UK fully exits the current systems on 29 March 2019. While we acknowledge that the UK continues to play a full role within the EU network during the exit negotiations, we also recognise that there are potentially significant implications for the European network as a whole and particularly for Ireland with its shared marketplace. The HPRA wishes to engage with stakeholders to explain how the organisation is responding to the possible implications of Brexit and hear from them the key issues and concerns they have.

Aims of the event

The aim of the meeting is to engage with stakeholders on our approach to potential Brexit scenarios, to outline our plans to increase our contribution to EU regulatory procedures as may be required, and to understand the concerns and requirements of different stakeholder groups. The meeting will focus on medicines for human and veterinary use and will include short presentations from speakers, followed by an open forum to allow questions, identify areas of concerns and share information.


Speakers will include representatives from human and veterinary medicines industry associations, from the Industrial Development Authority and the HPRA.
