Joint VMD and VPC open information day – 18 November

, , Leave a comment

The VMD and the VPC will be holding their joint open information day this year but as you might expect, with some differences. It will not be a ‘live’, interactive event.

On 18 November the VMD and the VPC will be releasing a series of pre-recorded webinars for you to view at your leisure. Also on 18 November we will open a ‘Slido’ Q&A until 20 November for your comments and questions. We will publish our responses on 27 November.

We will publish more information here on GOV.UK on 18 November including links to the webinars and full instructions on how to use Slido.

The webinars will cover a range of subjects including:

  • The VMD – Looking ahead
  • The VMD’s Regulatory Science Strategy
  • Scientific advice and novel therapies
  • Our International Strategy and activity
  • The work of the Residues Team
  • Supply chain resilience and supply chain issues
  • Contingency planning
  • Veterinary Medicines Regulations
  • Joint assessments with Ireland’s Health Products Regulatory Authority
  • Veterinary Medicines Digital Services
  • Blood banks guidance updates
  • Animal Test Certificate – Type S (ATC-S)
  • Antimicrobial Resistance
  • Veterinary Products Committee (VPC) annual review of activities

If you would like to be included on the mailing list for this event please email

As the open day is for all our stakeholders, it is not the intention to dive into the details which are only of most interest to Marketing Authorisation Holders and manufacturers of veterinary medicines relating to the UK and EU Transition. Instead, we will be holding a live dedicated information day in early December. More information about this event will be available soon.
