Share

The European Medicines Agency's relocation from the United Kingdom to the Netherlands is being complicated by a need to move into temporary accommodation in the first instance.

Because of the construction delay, Italy has applied for an annulment of the Amsterdam decision, while the EMA's executive director has complained of having to spend months in temporary accommodation when the agency leaves London's Canary Wharf starting in January 2019.

The Italian government will appeal an European Union decision to move the bloc's medical agency to Amsterdam, the mayor of Milan, the runner-up city for the relocation, said Tuesday.

Mayor Beppe Sala told Radio 102.5 he discussed the issue with Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni.
