It’s of­fi­cial: EMA to move in­to per­ma­nent Am­s­ter­dam premis­es in No­vem­ber ‘19 amid con­tin­ued protests from Italy

Al­most four months af­ter the fate­ful “coin toss” that de­cid­ed the EMA’s re­lo­ca­tion to Am­s­ter­dam, the (cur­rent­ly) Lon­don-based reg­u­la­to­ry agency has for­mal­ly ham­mered out a tran­si­tion plan with the Dutch gov­ern­ment.

At a meet­ing Wednes­day, the EMA’s man­age­ment board no­ti­fied the EU Bud­getary Au­thor­i­ty of its in­ten­tion to move in­to new per­ma­nent premis­es in the busi­ness dis­trict of Zuidas, af­ter vot­ing on the re­vised pro­pos­al by the Dutch. The date of com­ple­tion is No­vem­ber 15, 2019, mean­ing that the EMA will be work­ing out of a tem­po­rary of­fice for eight months post-Brex­it, which is set for March 2019.
