Some 82 medicines, including adrenaline, insulin, paracetamol and morphine, have been added to the list of medicines that cannot be parallel exported from the UK, effective from Saturday 21 March.

All medicines on the list are in high demand across Europe as health systems come under increasing pressure from coronavirus.

Companies that parallel export a medicine on the ban list may face tough enforcement action from the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) and risk having their trading licence revoked for serious breaches.
