Veterinary Medicinal Products Unit fees for 2024 included in revised Veterinary Medicinal Products Regulations 2022
With effect from 1 January 2024, the Medicines Evaluation Board (MEB) will be increasing its fees. The fees of the Veterinary Medicinal Products Unit will be increased by 4.7%. This standard increase is necessary due to wage and price developments.
In addition to this standard increase in the regular fees, some new fees have been added. These are the result of new procedures under the Veterinary Medicinal Products Regulation. You can find the new product types further along the table.
All fees charged by the Veterinary Medicinal Products Unit in 2024 are included in the revised Veterinary Medicinal Products Regulations 2022. These will take effect on 1 January 2024.
Fees and product types
The Veterinary Medicinal Products Unit charges for the work that it performs. Fees are charged, for example, for the application and change procedures relating to the issuing of marketing authorisations and production and distribution licences for veterinary medicinal products. Marketing authorisation holders also pay an annual fee for each marketing authorisation they hold. A product type is linked to each fee.

While determining the new fees for 2024, the following was observed:
During the update of the Veterinary Medicinal Products Regulations 2022, which took effect on 1 January 2023, several agreed-upon amounts were not implemented correctly. For more information, you can refer to the explanation (on page 6) accompanying the revised Veterinary Medicinal Products Regulations 2022.
The amounts specified in the original Veterinary Medicinal Products Regulations 2022 take precedence. This has implications for some of the fees calculated in 2023. If, as a result, you overpaid in 2023, the MEB will rectify this and issue a credit note. No action is required on your part.
