star this property answer text <p>Currently, rare diseases are defined as conditions affecting no more than five in 10,000 people in the European Union. The new European Clinical Trial Regulation (Regulation (EU) No 536/2014) will introduce an ‘ultra-rare’ condition and states that clinical trials for the development of orphan medicinal products and those of medicines affecting no more than one person in 50,000 in the EU (ultra-rare diseases) should be fostered, and in such areas, a rapid yet in-depth assessment is of particular importance. The new clinical trials regulation is expected to be implemented in the EU in late 2020. The Government has confirmed that United Kingdom law will remain aligned with the parts of the new EU clinical trials Regulation that are within the UK’s control.</p> more like this

Beyond that, the Political Declaration sets out a plan for a free trade area for goods, underpinned by deep regulatory co-operation, as well as a joint commitment to explore close cooperation with the European Medicines Agency.</p><p> </p><p>The Government also continues to prepare for the unlikely outcome that we leave the EU without any deal in March 2019. The Department has been engaging with all pharmaceutical companies that supply the United Kingdom with pharmacy or prescription-only medicines from, or via, the EU/European Economic Area, on their contingency plans in the event of a no deal EU Exit.</p><p> </p><p>Whatever the exit scenario, we will work to ensure that the UK will remain a world leader for the treatment of rare diseases after the UK leaves the EU, that UK patients are able to access the best and most innovative medicines including medicines for rare diseases and that their safety is protected. The UK life sciences industry has much to offer in creating, developing, trialing and commercialising medicines that will benefit UK patients and strengthen the ability of the UK to compete internationally.</p>
