The Veterinarian’s Role in VFD Compliance

by Jun 16, 2015News0 comments

The FDA recently published a draft of “Guidance for Industry 210: Veterinary Feed Directive Regulation Questions and Answers.” This outlines requirements under the new VFD rule and offers recommendations and answers questions regarding veterinarian’s responsibilities.

Among a long list of responsibilities and guidelines, includes information regarding filing VFD forms in either paper or electronic formats. While drug companies will make VFD forms for their products, veterinarians can also prepare their own.

The guidance lists the information that must be included in the written guidance. With the option to file these forms electronically through GlobalVetLINK’s FeedLINK® solution, veterinarians will be able to save time, and do what they do best, instead of hassling with paperwork.

For more information on the role of the veterinarian in VFD compliance, read the full article here, and for more information on FeedLINK, visit www.globalvetlink.com, or call 515-817-5703.
