Aim of the event 

This event is focussed on the implementation of the new veterinary regulation as it affects stakeholders in the animal health sector in Ireland. Speakers from the HPRA, the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM) and the Animal and Plant Health Association (APHA) Ireland will deliver the event. The aim is to update stakeholders on changes that affect them, as they relate to the regulation and monitoring of veterinary medicinal products in Ireland.

The event will be divided into four sessions to facilitate stakeholder participation. Significant time will be given to a question and answer period after presentations in each session. Registrants are invited to submit questions at the time of registration so that they can be addressed in presentations or in the Q&A session. It will also be possible to raise questions in a chat function during the event.
