Netherlands: Animals Act enters into force on 1 January 2013

The first decisions under this new law were the Decree on Veterinary Medicinal Products and the Regulation on Veterinary Medicinal Products.

Wednesday 6 February 2013 (5 years 3 months 15 days ago)

The Animals Act entered into force on 1 January 2013. The Animals Act is a framework legislation. This means that the act itself sets out a limited number of rules and also offers the option to arrange all sorts of matters about and for animals in General Administrative Measures (GAMs) and ministerial recommendations. Several of these new measures also entered into force on 1 January 2013.

The first decisions under this new law were the Decree on Veterinary Medicinal Products and the Regulation on Veterinary Medicinal Products. Their main aim is to lay down rules for manufacturers and distributors and also (temporarily) for the use of veterinary medicinal products by the veterinarian and livestock owner. This is an interim measure whilst the Decree on veterinary medicinal products and the Regulation on veterinary medicinal products are pending.

In addition, a number of promised measures will be implemented with regard to the policy on the use of antibiotics. A licence system will be implemented for the possession and marketing of raw materials for veterinary medicinal products. Veterinarians must be in possession of a licence for the dispensing of medicinal products. This licence can be linked to certain conditions. The free sale of antibiotics in animal shops will be prohibited. There are only a few exceptions for existing products until 1 July 2013 and 1 January 2014.

It will become punishable by law to offer animals for slaughter to the abattoir if they contain too much residue of antibiotics.
