Union Product Database (UPD)
Since the Veterinary Medicinal Products Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2019/6) entered into force, the active use of the UPD for variations not requiring assessment (VNRA) is obligatory for the applicant / marketing authorisation holder.
We continuously analyse occurring errors and send suggestions for correction to the EMA.
Please feel free to report your bugs and suggested fixes directly to the EMA:

UPD contact point
If you notice missing products or unclear information in the UPD, please contact the UPD contact point firstname.lastname@example.org. As long as not all products are available in the UPD, the 30 days after which a VNRA normally has to be entered in the UPD can be exceeded by 2-3 weeks.

This data includes, among others:
