According to Blaney, the transfer of authorizations is "primarily an administrative exercise," and there is no legal obstacle to using a shell company in the European Economic Area to hold marketing authorizations. "Legally, there's no reason why your European regulatory department can't remain in the UK." The only individual who would certainly need to move to a country within the bloc is the EU QPPV, he says.
