New rules for the registration of veterinary medicines in Ukraine in 2022

On February 4, 2021, Ukraine adopted a law regulating veterinary medicine, including certain procedural aspects of registering veterinary medicines. The law has already been enacted, but will be introduced gradually. 

Our company helps people who want to obtain a registration certificate for a veterinary drug, so we closely monitor the relative changes in legislation. Today, our lawyer will analyze and give his legal opinion concerning the new rules of veterinary medicines registration in Ukraine.

What changes have been made to the veterinary drug registration procedure in Ukraine?

The law on veterinary medicine was adopted to regulate certain issues, including the registration of veterinary medicines. It is aimed at:

  • shortening the timeframe for issuing registration documents;

  • digitalizing the corresponding sphere of relations — that is, we can expect the issuance of approvals in the veterinary field online;

  • protecting intellectual rights to invented new veterinary medicines in Ukraine;

  • strengthening liability for violations in the areas of veterinary medicine and animal handling.

But first of all we are interested in the changes that have been made to the procedure and whether it will become easier and faster to register a new veterinary drug in Ukraine. Let's highlight the most significant innovations that the new law promises:

  • Certificates of registration of veterinary medicines will be issued for an indefinite period of time, not for 5 years as before — which means that they will not need to be extended by going through a lengthy registration procedure all over again;

  • Only a Ukrainian legal entity will be able to apply for registration. That is, if the owner of the Dossier is a foreign person, he will need a Ukrainian intermediary company to work legally in Ukraine and register the veterinary medicine;

  • There is an annual fee for post-registration monitoring — 1 minimum wage in Ukraine;

  • Depending on the type of application for a drug registration (type of drug), there will be additional requirements for registration.

A separate important innovation in veterinary medicine will be the fact that the import, wholesale and retail sale of veterinary medicines, not only the activities related to the production of veterinary drugs, will be subject to licensing.
