Brexit update: the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union

On 20 December 2019 the EMA updated the UK withdrawal from the EU.

On 29 October 2019, the European Council agreed to a further extension of the date for the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. The extension will last as long as necessary and, in any event, no longer than 31 January 2020.

In defining its work programme for 2020 and beyond, EMA will focus on the core activities identified in phase four of its business continuity plan as a baseline. It will prioritise additional tasks depending on available resources.

The Agency is still in the process of rebuilding its workforce after its relocation. It will continue to monitor staff levels and review whether it can relaunch additional activities in June 2020.

As of December 2019, EMA's total available workforce was 775. This is significantly less than in November 2017 when EMA’s relocation plans took shape.
