Question for written answer E-000561-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Monika Beňová (S&D)

 Subject:  European Medicines Agency
 Answer in writing 

Reports that the European Medicines Agency (EMA) will not be ready by the conclusion of the process for the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union are increasing in frequency. It is becoming quite clear that there could be some, or even significant, disruption of the operational capacity of this agency, one of the most important currently operating in the European Union. Its involvement in overseeing the safety and effectiveness of all new drugs entering the European Union makes any disruption of its operations a serious issue.

Does the Commission have any information available to clarify the situation regarding the expected preparedness of the Amsterdam site?

If it becomes apparent that significant disruption is certain to occur, will the Commission take measures to avoid such an outcome?

If it is already clear that disruption will occur, will the Commission assist in efforts to mitigate such a state of affairs?
