The CGMP requirements were established to be flexible in order to allow each manufacturer to decide individually how to best implement the necessary controls by using scientifically design, processing methods, and testing procedures. The flexibility in these regulations allows companies to use modern technologies and innovative approaches to achieve higher quality through continual improvement. Accordingly, the "C" in CGMP stands for "current," requiring companies to use technologies and systems that are up-to-date in order to comply with the regulations. Systems and equipment that may have been "top-of-the-line" to prevent contamination, mix-ups, and errors 10 or 20 years ago may be less than adequate by today's standards.

Non-compliance costs are costs which result from a failure to comply with regulation. These costs are not considered to be part of the regulatory burden for the purposes of the RBM. This includes penalties and associated activities that are required to be undertaken as a result of non-compliance with a regulation. Regulatory impacts that arise, up to the point that action is taken to respond to the suspicion of a specific instance of non-compliance, are included in the RBM framework. This includes risk based frameworks that may target certain populations without a specific instance of suspicion. “FCPIAA defines a CMP as any penalty, fine, or other sanction that is for a specific monetary amount as provided by Federal law; or has a maximum amount provided for by Federal law; and is assessed or enforced by an agency pursuant to Federal law; and is assessed or enforced pursuant to an administrative proceeding or a civil action in the Federal Courts”. Failure to comply with the law can lead to enforcement action including one or more of the following: on-the-spot fines, prosecution, which carries a maximum fine of $12,110, disciplinary action, ranging from fines to cancellation of the license

The most important piece of UK legislation that would need to be repealed is the European Communities Act 1972 (ECA), which provides for the supremacy of EU law. Repealing the ECA will bring an end to the constitutional relationship that exists between EU and UK law. Moreover, the vast amounts of secondary legislation that have been passed with the objective and justification of implementing EU law would have to be considered by the Government. EU Regulations rely on the principle of direct applicability, which means that unlike EU Directives, they are directly implemented into UK law without the need for legislation from the UK Parliament. In this light, Regulations are more powerful legislative tools for the EU because of their immediate applicability. The status of existing Regulations will be addressed in the Great Repeal Bill, although as noted above, in many cases amendments will likely be needed to take into account the UK’s new relationship with the EU. The Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) situated in Luxembourg is the final arbiter on questions of the interpretation of EU law. In her first speech setting out the UK Government’s priorities for Brexit on 17 January 2017, the Prime Minister restated her position that the UK is not prepared to continue to be subject to the jurisdiction of the CJEU.
