UK issued EASA PPL and EASA Class 2 Medical

There's a thread on "Rumours and News" but I think many of us also have questions.
After the UK leaves EASA:
I hold an EASA Class 2 Medical, with an EASA PPL and a UK PPL (full PPL).
Will my EASA PPL still be valid? What medical will I need for it? What medical will I need for my UK PPL?
(Assuming we survive COV-19.)

EASA is not a state and cannot issue licenses. Your UK Pilots licence is issued in accordance with EASA regulations but is issued by the UK and therefore it remains a UK licence. At some point in the future but depending on how the EU/UK negotiations unravel it will be a simple matter of removing "EASA" from the UK issued licences as is the case with the UK passport.

The current UK passports remain valid although they have the words "European Community" written on them. They will only be updated on reissue following the expiry. All new passports are already being issued without the EU printed on them. It will be perfectly possible for such a simple but pragmatic process to be undertaken for pilot licences in my view.

Nothing is certain yet but if we actually leave EASA it will make licencing much simpler. The NPPL and UK/EASA PPL will merge into a single UK PPL, simplifying medical requirements and getting rid of silly EASA limits such as microlight hours not counting towards a full licence and the 100 hour minimum on converting foreign licences.
The elephant in the room however is the lack of qualified staff caused by delegating so much responsibility to EASA. It will be many years before some tasks such as aircraft certification can be returned to UK authority.

The NPPL is not ICAO compliant.
The EASA PPL is ICAO compliant.
I cannot therefore see how these can be “merged.”

The original UK CAA PPL is ICAO compliant and this may be what you are referring to.

The existing system of Part-FCL and non–Part-FCL licences—NPPL and UK PPL/CPL/ATPL—will continue for the foreseeable future after the transition period ends. EASA aircraft will become Part-21 aircraft and Annex I aircraft will become non–Part-21.

Is yours a paid role on the negotiation team or just from your armchair?
