Food Safety: Iceland fails to incorporate legislation on veterinary medical products

22.9.2010

PR(10)51

The Authority has today sent a final warning to Iceland for failure to incorporate a Directive[1] and Regulation[2] on veterinary medicinal products.


The Directive amends current EU legislation regarding veterinary medicinal products
in order to achieve high safety, quality and efficacy standards. The Regulation establishes, in accordance with the Directive, a list of substances essential for the treatment of equidae (such as horses). Iceland should have implemented the Directive by 23 December 2009 and the Regulation by 27 October 2007.

Delivering these reasoned opinions is the second stage of infringement proceedings. The Authority may decide to bring the matter before the EFTA Court if Iceland fails to take satisfactory measures within two months of receiving the reasoned opinions.
