Veterinary home pharmacy; notice of establishment and operation.
The running of a veterinary home pharmacy is subject to the duty of notification according to § 79 of the Act on the Marketing of Veterinary Medicinal Products and on the Implementation of EU Regulations Concerning Veterinary Medicinal Products (Veterinary Medicinal Products Act - TAMG).
The address of the business premises must be notified in writing to the competent authority prior to commencement of the activity. In Bavaria, the veterinary departments of the district administrative authorities (Landratsämter, kreisfreie Städte) are responsible.
Manufacturers and pharmaceutical wholesalers may only supply veterinary medicinal products to veterinarians if they have checked whether their customers are authorized to retail veterinary medicinal products (Article 101 (2) of Regulation (EU) 2019/6, Article 22 (1) of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/1248).
