Stock shortages of veterinary medicinal products

A stock shortage is defined as a situation in which it is impossible for a beneficiary to obtain supplies of a veterinary medicinal product on the national market.

A stock shortage is assessed as critical when it is likely to induce a risk to human health, animal health and welfare.

Following the workshop on "Stock shortages of veterinary medicinal products", organised during the ANMV Day on 21 September 2017, a working group was formed to address this theme, bringing together the various players in the veterinary medicinal product chain. These discussions led to the drafting of "Good practices for managing interruptions in veterinary medicinal product supplies". These specify the action to be taken by each of the stakeholders in the veterinary medicinal product market and the arrangements for exchanging information in the event of a veterinary medicinal product stock shortage.

Stock shortages that are likely to be critical must be reported to ANSES-ANMV by the operating laboratories as early as possible, in order to examine the possible alternatives.
