Veterinary pre-authorisation guidance
Guidance is available for marketing authorisation applicants for centrally authorised veterinary medicines in the form of questions and answers (Q&As) from the European Medicines Agency (EMA).
These Q&As provide an overview of EMA's advice on issues that are typically addressed in discussions or meetings with applicants before submitting a marketing authorisation application and throughout the assessment.
EMA emphasises the importance of pre-submission meetings, around seven months prior to the anticipated date of submission of the application.
These are a vital opportunity for applicants to obtain procedural, regulatory and legal advice from the Agency.
EMA's pre-authorisation guidance and successful pre-submission meetings should enable applicants to submit applications that conform with regulatory requirements and can be validated speedily.
Pre-submission meetings also enable applicants to establish contact with the Agency staff who will be involved with the application.
