We have published a series of pre-recorded webinars for you to view at your leisure. We have also opened a Slido Q&A which will be available until the 20 November for your comments and questions.
We will publish our responses on 27 November.
As the open day is for all our stakeholders, it is not the intention to dive into the details which are only of most interest to Marketing Authorisation Holders and manufacturers of veterinary medicines relating to the UK and EU Transition. Instead, we will be holding a live dedicated information day in early December.
