In this article, the author discusses the European Commission (EC) consultation on veterinary medicines in Great Britain. The author cites that the objective of the consultation is to simplify the legal framework on the regulation of veterinary pharmaceuticals, promote public and animal welfare and attain a single European market for such products. The author further states that any legislative review not only provides opportunity to improve but also a risk that change could backfire.
