Initial evaluation Activity area Initial evaluation refers to the process of scientific assessment of applications for veterinary medicines submitted for marketing authorisation through the centralised procedure. The following activities are included in this domain. • Initial evaluation. The initial evaluation phase includes pre-submission discussions with future applicants, scientific evaluation of applications, and issuing an opinion to the European Commission. The Commission grants the marketing authorisation, following which the Agency publishes a European public assessment report (EPAR). • Establishment of MRLs. The use of veterinary medicinal products in food-producing animals may result in the presence of residues in foodstuffs obtained from treated animals.

medicinal product can be authorised, the safety of its residues must be evaluated. The Agency establishes maximum residue limits (MRLs) for pharmacologically active substances used in veterinary medicines, as well as for certain biocidal products used in animal husbandry, to ensure consumer safety with regard to foodstuffs of animal origin, including meat, fish, milk, eggs and honey. Drivers The Agency expects to see continued interest in submission of applications for marketing authorisation for innovative veterinary medicinal products, including therapies that are completely new to veterinary medicine. These will present particular challenges for the Committee for Medicinal Products for Veterinary Use (CVMP) in terms of benefit-risk assessment. The number of applications for new MRLs is expected to remain at a similar level, indicating continuous interest in the industry in developing new veterinary medicines for food-producing animals. Streamlined business processes will be implemented in 2017 to provide increased harmonisation and efficiency in procedures.
