Veterinary Medicines if there is no Brexit deal

A scenario in which the UK leaves the EU without agreement (a no deal scenario) remains unlikely given the mutual interests of the UK and the EU in securing a negotiated outcome.

Negotiations are progressing well and both we and the EU continue to work hard to seek a positive deal. However, its our duty as a responsible government to prepare for all eventualities, including no deal, until we can be certain of the outcome of those negotiations.

In a no deal scenario, sharing of common systems, and exchange and recognition of data submitted for regulatory activities between the UK and EU Member States would cease.

This would require changes to the Veterinary Medicines Regulations with consequential implications for veterinary medicine stakeholders.
