VMD invites stakeholders to discuss EU proposals for vet medicine law

The Veterinary Medicines Directorate has invited stakeholders to register interest to discuss the European proposals for revised law on veterinary medicines and medicated feeds. The deadline for doing so is Friday.

The letter sent out is as follows.

Dear All

We understand the European Commission intends to publish its proposals to replace the existing Directives on veterinary medicines and medicated feed in September.

Following the publication of the proposals we plan to run stakeholder workshops to seek and understand the industries views on the impact of the proposals to inform the negotiation position.

Due to the broad scope of the provisions it may not be feasible to hold a single workshop. We anticipate that if there is enough interest several workshops of groups with similar interests may be required.

If you would like to register your interest to take part, please send the name of the representative(s), the name of the organisation and the specific area(s) of interest to Lorna Shelley (l.shelley@vmd.defra.gsi.gov.uk) by Friday 19 September. Due to the space required places will be limited to 2 people per organisation.

Once the proposals have been published, we will include a link to them on our website and will publish the dates for the stakeholder workshops(s).

For more information please contact Jo Cawthorne (j.cawthorne@vmd.defra.gsi.gov.uk) or Lea Reynolds (l.reynolds@vmd.defra.gsi.gov.uk)

With kind regards
