BIVDA response to Parliament’s vote on the Brexit deal

Today the House of Commons voted down the EU withdrawal agreement and the framework for the future relationship.

Doris-Ann Williams, BIVDA’s Chief Executive, commented: “Today’s vote casts a shadow of uncertainty over the UK’s future relationship with the EU. The IVD industry remains anxious about access for patients to essential diagnostic tests if there is no transition period after 29 March. We therefore call for positive steps to be taken in these testing times and urge Government and policy makers to provide clarity and create sufficient space for our sector so that it is able to meet the significant challenge of ensuring the supply of essential diagnostics tests to patients through 2019.”
