Where medicine data comes from

The information you see on this website comes directly from the 'Union Product Database', the EU database for collecting and storing information on veterinary medicinal products authorised in the EU / EEA.

The information on each medicine is submitted to the database by the medicines regulatory authority that has authorised its use. This authority is responsible for ensuring completeness and accuracy of the information.

The responsible authority could be either:

  • the regulator for veterinary medicines in an EU Member State or EEA country (the national competent authority), if the medicine is authorised nationally for use in one or more country;
  • the European Medicines Agency (EMA), if the medicine is centrally authorised for use throughout the EU / EEA.

You can find out who the responsible authority is for each medicine on the medicine's page under 'Authorisation details'.

The website is automatically updated as soon as new or updated information is available in the database. You can track updates to this website on our what's new page.

EMA maintains this website in collaboration with the EU / EEA medicines regulatory authorities, and the European Commission.
