Update on the SPC export and stockpiling waiver

Following its approval by the European Parliament in April, the final legislation amending SPC Regulation EC/469/2009 – Regulation (EU) 2019/933 of 20 May 2019 – was published in the Official Journal of the EU on 11 June 2019, and will now enter into force on 01 July 2019

Thank you to Andrew Hutchinson and Nicholas Fischer of Simmons & Simmons for passing this on and providing some commentary on the new legislation, which is available here.
