The Health Products Regulatory Authority (HPRA), formerly the Irish Medicines Board, has now published its September to December Newsletter with Brexit content.
This newsletter is here.
This newsletter covers human and veterinary medicines, and gives key links to other information sources.
Note : the content is wider than Brexit, and sets out new legislative changes, with some details on the other EU26.
I posted so far a number of times (marked EU Notices) about the guidance issued to stakeholders by the European Commission and the EU regulators. Note : there are now 65 EU Notices issued, and this material is gathered here.
In addition, please note I posted in 2017 about the going forward invalidity of UK issued carbon credits (EUETS scheme).
On 18th April, the FT published an article about approximately 40 new legislative proposals to be issued over the next 10 weeks or so (in addition to the EU Notices). This article is here. At EU level, these legislative proposals are marked “Brexit Preparedness”.
So far :
(1) a wider consultation on WTO schedules (separation of UK from EU) – here.
(2) a proposal on EU type-approval legislation – here.
Yesterday, the Irish state broadcaster RTÉ published an article of a briefing by the Secretary General of the European Commission to the Brexit Steering Group of the European Parliament (and an associated internal document of the planned Brexit Preparedness legislative proposals).
This article identifies the list of areas for these new proposals – banking, tariffs, energy efficiency, medicines, visa, and transport.
Among the proposals is a plan to design a maritime route to link Ireland and the Continental part of the North Sea-Mediterranean Corridor.
The RTE report is here.
Deep and fundamental changes are underway both to Whitehall (government departments) and to the Ministers responsible. Please look out for my Blog posts over the next days as I summarise the changes and their implications for policy and policy delivery.
Please ensure anyone who is not yet signed up to follow my Blog, signs themselves up now. Follow the instructions.
New for 2016 is a Manufacturing Category in my blog.
I just re-categorised that last post (UK Steel Industry support) into that category.
Just before the Energy Bill second reading, Anna Soubry MP (Business, Innovation and Skills Minister) is giving an update on UK Government support for the steel industry. She has said this also applies to aluminium.
Find here the statement (three hours after its made).
