Webinar: DHSC & MHRA to discuss changes to medicines following Windsor Framework

By March 10, 2023No Comments

DHSC would like to invite you to a webinar at 2pm on Thursday 16 March, on the recent announcement from the Government on the significant changes to medicines in the Windsor Framework. They will be joined by colleagues from MHRA, and will be discussing:

  • The replacement of the EMA by the MHRA as Northern Ireland’s regulator for all novel medicines, making the MHRA the sole medicines regulator for Northern Ireland.
  • The disapplication of the Falsified Medicines Directive in Northern Ireland.
  • The requirement to add a ‘UK-only’ marking to UK medicine packs.
  • Simplifications to customs and Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) processes that will significantly reduce requirements on traders.

Please register for the webinar here, and place a hold in your diary for 2-3pm on Thursday 16 March. They will provide a calendar invite to everyone who has registered closer to the time.

They are working through the details of what this means for all products and supply chains and will revert with further information on these arrangements in due course. Further information is available on here.

There are no changes that industry needs to make immediately, and guidance will be released in due course.

If you are having any issues with the sign-up process, please email
