EMA To Consult Staff On Relocation Plans Again As Brexit Time Pressure Mounts

The EMA is to further refocus on its core activities to help it deal with “higher than expected” staff losses due to its relocation to Amsterdam.
Members of the European Parliament are heading to the Netherlands to see whether the European Medicines Agency’s relocation process is going according to plan. The move follows Italian criticisms that the Dutch provided “incomplete” information about their readiness to host the agency.
The Italian government has asked the Court of Justice of the EU to annul the decision to site the European Medicines Agency in Amsterdam and wants to move the agency instead to Milan. But the Dutch government insists that the selection process was “fair” and that the need for temporary premises had been made clear all along.
