Veterinary medicines: New rules to promote animal health and fight antimicrobial resistance now apply

In the fight against antimicrobial resistance (AMR), a revamped legislation on veterinary medicinal products applies in the EU as from today.

Adopted three years ago, this legislation is now a cornerstone to support the achievement of the objectives set in the European One Health Action Plan and in the Farm to Fork Strategy against AMR. The legislation also consolidates the EU's leading role on the global stage to act against AMR.
