omv veterinary policies
OMV – Veterinary policies

OMV is often invited to meet with the Government, Veterinary Services and other stakeholders, concerning diverse legislative matters that affect Veterinary practitioners

OMV acts as an adviser, uttering opinions and suggestions and producing drafts which help to improve legal documents.

Some of the themes recently debated were:

  • Veterinary drugs and medicate feed prescriptions
  • Veterinary Medicines and Products
  • Veterinary Medical Centres
  • Complaints Book
veterinary prescriptions
Veterinary Prescriptions
  • Giving the need to control the prescription and use of drugs on farm animals, the Government published laws approving veterinary medicines and veterinary medicated feed normalized prescriptions (D.L.175/2005, Portaria 1159/2005 and D.L. 151/2005).
  • Those diplomas establish the principle that all veterinary drugs used in farm animals must be prescribed by a veterinarian, using standard formularies.
  • OMV is the entity responsible for supplying the official prescriptions and the professional vignette, which identifies the veterinarian/prescriptioner.
veterinary medicines and products
Veterinary Medicines and Products
  • Following the publication of the national laws approving the veterinary medicines and veterinary medicated feed prescriptions (D.L.175/2005, Portaria 1159/2005 and D.L. 151/2005), the Government felt the need to update the laws regarding Veterinary Drugs and Products. A new document was prepared to replace the D.L.184/1997, meeting the requirements of UE Directives 2001/82/CE and 2004/28/CE.
  • The new legislation regarding Veterinary Drugs and Products, was already approved by the Government and will be published in the next few days. This diploma will establish the veterinary practitioner as the only person allowed to prescribe veterinarydrugs and will authorize Veterinary Medical Centers to sell Veterinary Medicines and Products (MUV and PUV). It will also revoke some norms related with the commerce of MUV and PUV and will permit the purchase of these products by associations and farmers.
veterinary clinical centres
Veterinary Clinical Centres
  • OMV also regulates the Private Practioners’ activity, by implementing Regulations on the establishment and practise in Veterinary Clinical Centres (CAMV):
  • All CAMV have to be registered in OMV. After an OMV inspection, the centres are classified in Consulting-rooms,Clinics or Hospitals.
  • OMV also established that each CAMV must have a Clinic Director, who’s responsible for all the practitioners working in the CAMV, and is also accountable for the observance of all the deontological and ethical rules.
  • These internal regulations will be translated into National Law, and the Official Veterinary Services (DGV) will be responsible for licensing the Clinical Centres, in cooperation with OMV.
veterinary clinical centres18
Veterinary Clinical Centres
  • There are 907 Veterinary Clinical Centres registered in OMV:
complaints book
Complaints Book
  • On January 6th 2008, the DL 371/2007 was brought to force, which widened the obligatoriness of determined establishments to provide Complaints Book. The Veterinary Medical Centres were also be comprised by this legislation.
  • All the complaints must be sent to the Ordem dos Médicos Veterinários, which is the Institution responsible for the processes surveillance and instruction.
  • OMV is the only Professional Order in Portugal which was given this attribution.
