The UK is leaving the EU. This page tells you how to prepare for Brexit and will be updated if anything changes.

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) is making preparations to ensure that you can continue to submit regulatory and notification information to the UK.

In a no-deal Brexit, the UK would no longer be part of the EU medicines and medical devices regulatory networks. Submissions related to human medicines would need to be submitted directly to the MHRA.

We have a contingency programme in place to deliver new systems and processes should we lose access to the current EU IT systems. Where feasible, we are trying to minimise additional administrative burdens and are trying to make any changes as simple to use as possible.
