National competent authorities (veterinary)

  • Email
  • Help

The European Medicines Agency works closely with the national competent authorities of the Member States of the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA) responsible for veterinary medicines.

The national competent authorities are primarily responsible for the authorisation of medicines available in the EU that do not pass though the centralised procedure.

They also supply thousands of European experts who serve as members of the Agency's scientific committees, working parties or in assessment teams supporting their members. 

For more information on how EMA works together with the national competent authorities, see European medicines regulatory network.
