Additional evaluation time due to RMS re-allocation

Date: 28 January 2020

Applicants must be aware that due to the Brexit and the RMS re-allocation from the UK to other member states, delays in evaluations are expected. In the specific case, the time frames for an active substance were postponed by 5 months to allow sufficient time for the new RMS to take over the tasks and responsibilities from the former RMS UK, following their request, the discussions of the substance in the peer review expert meetings. This cause also delays in the overall timeline for the completion of the peer review for this substance.
