Restrictions on veterinary medicine use to prevent/eradicate animal diseases

Published by AGRINFO on ; Revised

Summary

Aiming to prevent the most devastating animal diseases (category A and B diseases), this Regulation harmonises within the EU the use of certain vaccines and veterinary medicinal products that prevent and control diseases. The objective is to eradicate the diseases and prevent any risk of their spread through the use of veterinary drugs (for example, certain drugs may mask some diseases; vaccinated animals may spread a virus).
