Post-Brexit home of European Medicines Agency

31 st May Post-Brexit home of European Medicines Agency

Brussels has issued its criteria for deciding the post-Brexit home of the European Medicines Agency (EMA). Member states are to submit bids to host the EMA by July 31 with a decision on the new location expected by October 2017. Obtained by the Financial Times, the document outlining the criteria states that it is ‘vital’ that member states bidding to host the EMA post-Brexit should minimise disruption of services and ensure ‘business continuity’. The document also requires that bidders are able to house the EMA’s off-site archive of 34,000 boxes. Read more via the Financial Times.

As it moves from its current London headquarters following Britain’s decision to leave the EU, the European Commission has said that it will assess 19 offers from various EU cities to host the European Medicines Agency’s (EMA) headquarters.

  • Amsterdam, the Netherlands
