CVMP: Working parties and other groups
The Committee for Medicinal Products for Veterinary Use (CVMP) establishes a number of working parties at the beginning of each three-year mandate. These working parties have expertise in a particular scientific field, and are composed of members selected from the list of European experts maintained by the Agency.

The current CVMP working parties are:
- Antimicrobials Working Party
