Deadline ends for bids to host EU agencies after Brexit

Brussels (dpa) - The 27 European Union member states remaining after Britain leaves the bloc have until midnight on Monday to present their bids to host the two EU agencies currently located in Britain.

The bloc is seeking to relocate the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the European Banking Authority (EBA), as the two agencies cannot remain in Britain after the country‘s exit from the EU in less than 2 years.

Hosting EU agencies is an economic and political boon for member states.

The EMA has around 890 employees and with 36,000 visitors annually, it requires a daily peak hotel capacity of 350 rooms. The EBA has a staff of about 200 people and its visitors book 9,000 nights of hotel stays annually.

During a summit in June, EU 27 leaders agreed to 4-step procedure to find new locations for the two agencies. With the deadline up to present bids, the European Commission will assess the applications based on a set of criteria during the next two months.

The criteria include: that the agencies can be up and running when Britain withdraws from the EU in March 2019; that the location is easily accessible with frequent flight connections; and that there are appropriate schooling and work opportunities for the children and spouses of EU staff.

Informed by the commission‘s assessment, member states will make a decision through a series of votes. A final decision on the relocations will be taken at a ministerial meeting in November.
