Veterinary drugs are the basis for the healthy development of animal husbandry. However, the veterinary drug market in some rural areas is not very standardized. The source of veterinary drugs is relatively complicated. If you are not careful, you may buy inferior drugs or obsolete drugs. Read the approval number on the veterinary drug packaging.This situation can be avoided very well.
Veterinary drug products must be marked with the approval number, and manufacturers that have passed GMP certification must also be clearly marked. According to the "Administrative Measures for the Approval Number of Veterinary Drug Products (Order of the Ministry of Agriculture 2015 No. 4)", the format of the approval number on the packaging of veterinary drugs is the abbreviation of the veterinary drug category + the serial number of the province (autonomous region or municipality where the enterprise is located) + the serial number of the enterprise + the veterinary drug Variety number:
1. Abbreviation of veterinary drug category. The category of medicinal feed additives is abbreviated as "Veterinary Drugs"; the categories of serum products, vaccines, diagnostic products, and microecological products are abbreviated as "Veterinary Drugs"; Chinese medicinal materials, Chinese patent medicines, chemical drugs, antibiotics, biochemical drugs, radioactive drugs, external use Insecticides and disinfectants are referred to as "veterinary drugs" for short; raw materials are referred to as "original veterinary drugs"; and the temporary veterinary drug product approval number issued by the Ministry of Agriculture is referred to as "veterinary drugs".
2. The serial number of the province (autonomous region, municipality directly under the Central Government) where the enterprise is located is represented by two Arabic numerals, which shall be stipulated and announced by the Ministry of Agriculture.
3. The enterprise serial numbers are sorted by province, represented by 3 Arabic numerals, and issued by the veterinary administrative department of the provincial people's government.
4. The veterinary drug variety number is represented by 4 Arabic numerals, which is stipulated and announced by the Ministry of Agriculture.
In addition, for all veterinary drugs sold and used in China, the text used in the packaging and labeling of veterinary drugs must be mainly in Chinese. The relevant veterinary drug approval number can be found on the China Veterinary Drug Information website.
