The UK Government has entered into their pre-election period, which means that they are limited on what can and cannot be discussed in relation to policy. Because of this, MHRA have confirmed that there will be a delay to publishing the response to the MHRA UKCA consultation (which closed in November), until this period is over on 9 May.
The focus groups that were scheduled to begin in April have also been postponed until then.
This puts a pause on the work BIVDA is doing to feed into the new Regulations, but we are hopeful that main of our positions will align with the Regulations that are published later on this year. No date has been confirmed for this.
