In mid-February, a further step towards the finalisation of the delegated act aiming at establishing control measures for antibiotics used as growth promoters for animals or animal co-products imported to the European Union was accomplished with the publication of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) opinion on the designation of antimicrobials for the treatment of certain infections in humans.

In parallel, following the implementation of the veterinary medicines regulation at the end of January, transitional measures have been applied to ensure the continuity of supply of veterinary medicines, which may have a direct impact on the practice of our profession.
