production and distribution licenses
The manufacturing, packaging, labelling and import of veterinary medicines require a license (hereafter: manufacturing license).
Import is the purchase of veterinary medicines outside the EEA (European Economic Area; the EU member states plus Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein).
This license obligation applies also to receiving and supplying veterinary medicines within the EEA (hereafter distribution license).
All companies with an MEB, Veterinary Medicinal Products Unit license can be found in the marketing authorisation holder register.
The information on manufacturing and distribution licenses refers to the stipulations specified in European and national legislation. Wherever possible, reference will be made to the relevant article in the Veterinary medicinal products act (DGW), the Veterinary medicinal products decree (DGB) or the Veterinary medicinal products regulations (DGR).
