On 6 May 2015, the European Medicines Agency (the Agency) completed an arbitration procedure following a disagreement among Member States of the European Union (EU) regarding the authorisation of the veterinary medicinal product Gutal 1000 g/kg premix for medicated feeding stuff for piglets. The Agency's Committee for Medicinal Products for Veterinary Use (CVMP) concluded that the marketing authorisation for Gutal can be granted provided that the recommended risk mitigation measures, which are anticipated to reduce the accumulation of zinc in the environment, are added to the product information.
