Guidance on SPC Harmonisation - according to Articles 70 to 72 of Regulation (EU) 2019/6
Request form for proposing a veterinary medicinal product for SPC harmonisation Exercise 2024
According to Article 69-72 of Regulation (EU) 2019/6, National Competent Authorities (NCA) as well as Marketing Authorisation Holders (MAH) may propose harmonisation of the SPCs of Reference Veterinary Medicinal Products (RVMPs) for which a marketing authorisation has been granted in accordance with Article 47.
The CMDv shall, annually, draw up a list of reference VMPs which shall be subject to SPC harmonisation and the CMDv shall also appoint a reference Member State (RMS) for each VMP concerned.
MAHs interested in participating in the SPC harmonisation exercise are invited to fill in the form linked here before 31st May: https://ec.europa.eu/eusurvey/runner/2023_MAHSurvey_SPCH
The product information template v.9 will be introduced during the SPC harmonisation procedure i.e. there is no need to submit a separate variation application (G.I.18). In case you already submitted such a variation application, you will be able to discuss it with the RMS that will be appointed.
Any question can be raised to the CMDv secretariat (CMDv). @ ema.europa .eu
