Veterinary Medicines Regulations Review presents opportunity for UK animal health sector to thrive, says NOAH
2nd February 2023
NOAH welcomes today’s launch by the Veterinary Medicines Directorate (VMD) of the public consultation on the new Veterinary Medicines Regulations (VMR) for GB.
Caitrina Oakes, NOAH Chair, says: “Updated Regulations are vital so that our members’ UK animal health businesses can plan for investment here. We welcome the launch of the consultation by the VMD. We will be reviewing the proposals thoroughly and look forward to responding in detail.
“NOAH members need a regulatory framework that can enable the UK animal health sector to thrive. The opportunity is now here, through this review, for UK Government to support competitiveness and innovation leading to an increase in the availability of veterinary medicinal products to British livestock and companion animals with the animal health and welfare and public health benefits this will bring.”
