Mr Simon Coveney, Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, has recently met with his cabinet to put the final touches on the Government's Contingency Action Plan, aimed at protecting numerous trade agreements between the UK and Ireland in case that there is a Brexit without an agreement next March 29th, as published by the Ministry of Agriculture of Spain in its Foreign News Gazette.

In this meeting, Mr Coveney has warned that the supply of veterinary drugs from UK manufacturers to Ireland will be adversely affected if the farmers, veterinarians, chemists and private individuals start to stock up drugs.

The Ministry of Agriculture and the Health Products Regulatory Authority (HPRA) have agreed on the following principles to tackle Brexit: guarantee the continuation of the supply of veterinary drugs; adopt a practical position to solve any problem regarding supply; and encourage the interested parties to collaborate directly with the authorities with regard to any worry having to do with the supply.

Based on this, the Ministry does not expect important supply problems to appear regarding veterinary drugs. Nevertheless, it warns that the stocking up of drugs is not required nor recommendable, and that this could, in itself, cause supply problems.

Some pharmaceutical companies have already adapted, at this stage, their supply chains to guarantee that their products fulfil the European legal requirements as of March 29th.
