Closes 28 Mar 2024

Opened 17 Jan 2024

Overview

This joint public consultation on revised charges for the National Residues Control Programme has been launched today (Wednesday 17 January) by the Veterinary Medicines Directorate (VMD).

The proposals will ensure that UK, Scottish and Welsh Government can continue to recover the full costs of delivering the National Residues Control Programme (NRCP) – a statutory programme designed to help identify residues of banned substances, veterinary medicines, and contaminants in products of animal origin which are destined for the food chain.  The NRCP helps to protect human health.
