Meeting Our Objectives

06 Objective 1 – Authorise veterinary medicines against legislative requirements according to published targets and fees and ensure the field‑use of veterinary medicines is safe and effective principally through the use of best practice in pharmacovigilance and through actively discouraging improper use.

07 Objective 2 – Ensure that UK policy objectives are reflected in European Commission (EC) legislation and that UK legislation and guidance ensures that veterinary medicines can be used effectively and safely, offering protection to human health, animal health and welfare and the environment.

08 Objective 3 – Actively monitor the safe use of veterinary medicines authorised in the UK through surveillance of residues and proportionate follow-up action where misuse is detected.

09 Objective 4 – Recover the full cost of our operations from the industry and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) and contribute to the Government's Better Regulation and efficiency agendas.
