UK - The Veterinary Medicines Directorate (VMD) is holding an Information Event for the Pharmaceutical Industry on Thursday 12 June 2014.

VMD is currently developing the schedule for the day and we are inviting your suggestions on areas you would like to see covered.

The following are areas we have identified for possible presentations:

  • EU legislation revision - consideration of proposals as they relate to Marketing Authorisations
  • Provisional Marketing Authorisations for vaccines
  • Animal Test Certificates and animal welfare issues

Please let contact VMD before the end of February what other areas you would like to be covered.

At this stage, VMD has not decided on the duration of the event; it will determine this according to your ideas on topics and will advise you of the final agenda and timing once this has been confirmed.
Depending on the level of interest, the number of attendees per company may need to be restricted.

If you would like to reserve a place at this free event, then please contact Mark Newman 01932 338349 or email
