The European Medicines Agency can give scientific advice to companies on the appropriate tests and studies in the development of a veterinary medicine. This is designed to facilitate the development and availability of high-quality, effective and acceptably safe medicines.
For veterinary medicines, scientific advice is given by the Committee for Medicinal Products for Veterinary Use (CVMP) on the recommendation of the Scientific Advice Working Party (SAWP).
Information on fees payable for scientific advice can be found under fees.
