Guide to Transfer of Veterinary Product Authorisations
17 October 2011
A marketing authorisation for a veterinary medicine may be transferred from the existing marketing authorisation holder to another holder using a transfer procedure. A transfer may occur before a product is authorised or following authorisation, to a company related to the marketing authorisation holder or to an unrelated company.
Further information on the procedure may be found in the IMB Guide to Transfer of Veterinary Product Authorisations. Application forms are available for applications made before authorisation and for transfer of an authorised product. They can be found in the Publications section of the IMB website.
Transfer applications are the subject of national procedures, even if the product has been authorised under the mutual recognition or decentralised procedures.
