What Happens Next?

Our ‘no deal’ whitepaper takes a look at the likelihood of a ‘no deal’ Brexit and how that will impact on the life science sector.

Our pharmacovigilance team look at the measures that companies need to put in place now if they are to prepare for the UK leaving the EU without a deal.  The role of the QPPV has been much discussed in recent years, since the outcome of the referendum became known, and companies need to be aware of the implications that Brexit will have on that role.

The medical devices team look at the role of the EU Authorised Representative and the implications for Notified Bodies.  The devices sector is in a particular ‘state of flux’ at present with the introduction of new legislation and Brexit adds to the issues that device manufacturers need to be mindful of at this time.  Download it here.
