A key topic discussed was risk to disruption to the supply chain for centrally authorised medicinal products.
- supply from the UK
- companies will have to make changes to their marketing authorizations for an EU without the UK.
A MAH may have to move from the UK to another country in the new EU. That may lead to a delay in production of relevant medicines.
Changes at the latest by December 2020.
Options – where available – include switching patients to other medicines with similar efficay and safety profiles. Additional burden of falsified medicines regulations coming at a difficult time.
Other topics included updates on electronic prescribing information, progress of the joint working parties topic group on Digital Media for Health.
