Clinical and Contract Research Association – Brexit update
In the months following the outcome of the EU referendum, CCRA has been extremely busy striving for the best possible outcome for the UK CRO industry. In collaboration with the other Life Science Trade Associations, and spearheaded by the ABPI and BioIndustry Associations, we have had input into position papers and frequent, and ongoing, telephone discussions since August 2016. These are aimed at making it clear to government what is at stake and the best possible negotiating position to take. In addition, as always, we continue to have regular discussions with government trade and regulatory bodies. CCRA is also represented on a number of working groups with its key stakeholders in UK and Europe aimed at identifying and addressing the challenges ahead in the most appropriate way.
