European Commission: Volume 9B of the Rules Governing Medicinal Products in the European Union: Public consultation on the Guidelines on Pharmacovigilance for Medicinal Products for Veterinary Use
The European Commission today launches a public consultation on Volume 9B, the Guidelines on Pharmacovigilance for Medicinal Products for Veterinary Use. Volume 9B has been updated to take account of Regulation (EC) No 726/2004 and Directive 2004/28/EC as well as to take account of scientific and technical progress. Before the decision was taken to split the guideline into Volume 9A and 9B respectively, the old Volume 9 covered medicinal products both for human and veterinary use. The new Volume 9A on medicinal products for human use has already been published. This public consultation relates to Volume 9B i.e. medicinal products for veterinary use only. The document has been elaborated by the Pharmacovigilance Working Party of the EMEA\'s Committee for Veterinary Medicinal Products and was agreed by this Committee.
