The informal meeting of the Committee on Veterinary Medicinal Products (CVMP) and the Coordinating Group on Mutual and Decentralised Veterinary Recognition (CMDv) will bring together all the representatives of each Member State responsible for the evaluation of veterinary medicinal products. The European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the European Commission will also participate in this meeting.

This meeting will allow committee members to exchange on dossiers related to the registration and evaluation of veterinary medicinal products in the European Union. It will take place just four months after the entry into force of Regulation 2019/6 on veterinary medicinal products.
