Strategic Plan 2015-2020
The Committee of Veterinary Medicines for the Americas, working group for the harmonization of the registration and control of veterinary drugs under the umbrella of the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), has been in continuous operation since 1992, when the first Seminar was held of Harmonization of Standards for Registration and Control of Veterinary Medicines in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is a unique institution of its kind since it combines the efforts of the official sector and the private sector in a framework of frank and open discussion.
The products of the group, in the form of standards applicable to this area, are a set of documents that allow the real technical requirements to obtain effective, safe and innocuous veterinary products, equivalent to those recommended, to be downloaded to the real terrain of the member countries on an international level.
