IFAH-Europe – 2007 Conference on Veterinary medicines regulation

Is Europe still at the cutting edge of innovation? Brussels on 6 June 2007

This year’s topic, better regulation, is an exciting and challenging one and the event will examine the relationship between regulation and competitiveness in the animal health sector in line with the recent initiative by the European Union on better regulation.
Over the last decade IFAH-Europe and its members have been examining regulation for veterinary medicines and competitiveness in the context of benchmarking studies of regulatory practices. The 2007 conference will feature various aspects of better regulation and IFAH-Europe will present the outcome of the 2006 benchmarking study as well as proposals to reform the current regulatory framework to enable innovation.
The conference will gather experts from public authorities and the private sector to exchange views on better regulation for the animal health industry. Speakers will include representatives from the animal health industry, EU institutions and national authorities.
