UK Regulatory Affairs Services

Maintain your business effective and compliant in the post-Brexit UK market

UK Regulatory Affairs Services

After the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union took place, the UK regulatory context separated from that of the European Union, what posed a challenge for pharmaceutical companies in order to understand to what extent their market activity would be affected.

This change led to the need of providing support both for adapting past casuistries to the new regulatory environment and to generate strategic projects for new commercialization, such as in:

  • Clinical and pre-approval support
  • Registration and authorisation
  • Post-approval and product maintenance support

Altogether, these services are provided based on the following aspects:

  • Assessment of the regulatory impact and development of a Brexit transition strategy for your company
  • Management of MAH transfers and other necessary variations
  • Continuous update on the regulatory requirements dictated by the MHRA due to Brexit
