CCMO on Brexit and clinical research

Brexit and clinical research

The United Kingdom (UK) has left the European Union (EU) on 31 January 2020. A transitional period is now in place until 31 December 2020. During this period, all EU laws and regulations will continue to apply in the UK. Virtually nothing will change for the public and for businesses during this period. Sponsors and researchers need to be prepared for the situation following the transitional period.

There is also a joint technical notice to sponsors issued by the European Commission, EMA and HMA on continuous compliance with EU legislation.
