Its purpose is to enable the existing regulatory frameworks to be updated at the end of the Transition Period.

“The Bill is necessitated by Brexit but as many noble lords have said it does not provide detail required to address the concerns about protecting patient’s safety, promoting innovation and helping British businesses at such a difficult time.” Lord Rennard calls for a close alignment for regulation between the UK the EU and other international standard bodies.
