Implementation status in Austria

Veterinary Medicinal Products Act (TAMG)

The Federal Ministry of Social Affairs, Health, Care and Consumer Protection is currently working on a national Veterinary Medicinal Products Act, which will define the implementing provisions and possible supplements at national level.
The aim is a uniform Veterinary Medicinal Products Act, which contains both the provisions for authorisation (previously Medicinal Products Act AMG) and for use (previously Veterinary Medicinal Products Control Act TAKG).
Until the entry into force of this implementing law, the directly applicable provisions of the EU Regulation are to be enforced within the framework of the existing laws.


With regard to the procedure for the conversion of products authorised in accordance with Directive 2001/82/EC whose renewal submission date falls after 28.01.2022, it is planned to draft a legal regulation in such a way that these products are transferred to an unlimited authorisation.

The updated fee schedule has been published
In addition to new fees for veterinary clinical trials, reduced fees have been introduced for marketing authorisation applications for limited markets and under exceptional circumstances in accordance with Articles 23 and 25 of Regulation (EU) 2019/6. The previous veterinary reductions remain in place.
