We advise marketing authorisation holders of veterinary medicinal products authorised under the decentralised procedure and the mutual recognition procedure that some ATC codes have changed in 2013.
The changes can be seen in Medicine Prices from 15 April 2013 and are implemented pursuant to WHOCC's new ATCvet codes and WHOCC’s alterations in ATCvet codes.
If changes have been made to the ATC code or text of a medicinal product authorised under the decentralised procedure or the mutual recognition procedure, the marketing authorisation holder must apply for an update of the summary of product characteristics, cf. the Guideline on variations to marketing authorisations for medicinal products .
