As part of our work preparing to make a success of our departure from the European Union we are undertaking a broad range of sectoral analysis covering the entirety of the UK economy. This means looking at 58 sectors as well as cross-cutting regulatory, economic and social issues to help inform our negotiation positions.
The Government’s sector report on Life Sciences, which also covers pharmaceuticals and medical devices, sets out a description of the sectors, the current EU regulatory regime, existing frameworks for how trade is facilitated between countries in these sectors and sector views. These reports have been made available for members of both Houses to read in a secure reading room.
The Government is committed to securing the best possible deal for the United Kingdom - a deal that works for the entirety of the UK economy. We have been engaging with businesses and industry bodies from all sectors of the economy in order to inform our negotiations with the EU.
