BIVDA Comment on Prime Minister's No Deal Brexit Statement

 

BIVDA has commented on the Prime Minister’s statement today declaring that the United Kingdom must prepare for a ‘No Deal’ scenario as talks on an agreement stall.

 

Chief Executive Doris-Ann Williams said;

 

“It is concerning to hear the Prime Minister talking of no deal. The smooth import and export of IVD devices is critical to patient care and any potential impact of delays at our ports and airports would impact the most vulnerable.

 

There is still time left for a deal, but we are helping BIVDA members prepare for a no deal scenario.  At the same time, many IVD companies are engaged with the COVID-19 pandemic, regulatory preparedness and a drop in take-up of non-COVID testing demand.

 

The UK and EU must keep talking and finalise a deal that is the best interests of patients and the life sciences sector.”

 

ENDS
