New Regulation 2022/839 – packaging and labelling of veterinary medicines

News Category: Regulatory news

Date: 03/06/2022

On 30 May 2022, the European Commission published Regulation 2022/839 to lay down transitional rules for the compliance of the packaging and labelling of existing veterinary medicines with Regulation 2019/6.

The Regulation allows veterinary medicines authorised before 28 January 2022 to continue to be placed on the market until 29 January 2027 even if the labelling and package leaflet are not in compliance with Regulation 2019/6.

The flexibility in updating the packaging and labelling of products does not apply to veterinary antibiotics, which must conform to any new requirements that are needed to address the challenge of antimicrobial resistance.

For the full text of Regulation 2022/839, see the European Commission website.
