Before a veterinary medicinal product can be marketed in the UK, it must have a marketing
authorisation (MA) or meet certain criteria for exemption. An MA can be granted in the
European Union (EU) via the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and European Commission
(EC), or in the UK via the Veterinary Medicines Directorate (VMD). This article looks at what
is involved in the licensing of veterinary medicinal products, including generics, for use in
the UK.
