More drugmakers build Brexit stockpiles as EU agency faces exodus
Updated : August 02, 2018 12:04 AM IST
The European Medicines Agency, which oversees drug safety across the bloc, warned of bigger than expected staff losses and cuts in some activities as a result of having to move from London to Amsterdam due to Brexit.
The announcements show how the highly regulated pharmaceuticals sector is feeling the impact of Britain's looming departure from the EU.
British lawmakers have also called for an agreement that allows the country to have continued participation in the European medicines regulatory framework, but it remains unclear how this will play out in the broader EU negotiations.
