BIVDA comment on Withdrawal Agreement and political declaration

15th November 2018

Commenting on the announcement of the Withdrawal Agreement and political declaration on the future relationship between the UK and the EU 27, Doris-Ann Williams, Chief Executive of BIVDA, said: “We welcome the progress made and we will be assessing the implications of these proposals, working closely with our members. It is critical that the UK environment for IVDs, and life sciences as a whole, remains as attractive as possible and that a future deal provides for the long-term health of this extremely valuable sector. We remain anxious about access for patients to essential diagnostic tests if there is no transition period after 29th March and are keen to work with the UK and EU in the weeks and months ahead to ensure that our sector can continue to thrive, develop and innovate for the benefit of the NHS, the economy and, most importantly, patients all across the UK."
