Abstract:
New legal provisions for the assurance of consumer safety and quality standards of products from food producing animals in Austria. In 2002 new laws on the placing on the market, administration, holding in readiness for application, storage and import of veterinary medicinal products for use in food producing animals came into force. Linked to the new act on the control of veterinary medicinal products (Tierarzneimittelkontrollgesetz) is a new Austrian regulation on the use of veterinary medicinal products (Tierarzneimittel-Anwendungsverordnung 2002) wherein some veterinary products are listed according to their pharmacologically active substance, target species and brand name; only medicinal products listed in this regulation are permitted to be handed out by the responsible veterinarian to the animal owner for self-medication of the animals under his care. The selection of veterinary medicinal products for self-treatment of livestock by the animal owner varies in dependence on the type of contractual agreements between farmer and veterinary surgeon and/or the holding of a membership of the Austrian animal health service, For the first time in Austria animal owners with a membership of the Austrian animal health service or who are under contract according to 24 (3) of the Austrian veterinarians act (Tiertarztegesetz) are explicitly allowed to administer drugs for subcutaneous, intramuscular and intramammary application to their animals. In accordance with the actual legal status holders of food producing animals may also be permitted to apply selected vaccines to their animals and to manufacture medicated feeding stuff for their own animals.
