EGGVP, the European Group for Generic Veterinary Products, is the association representing the pharmaceutical industry of generic veterinary medicines in Europe. Founded in April 2002, EGGVP is today celebrating its 15th anniversary.
EGGVP was born with the aim of representing and giving support to pharmaceutical companies expanding their activity into the generic veterinary medicines segment. The need to define a harmonised, ransparent and competitive regulatory environment for the manufacturing and distribution of generic veterinary products in the EU was the main reason behind the establishment of EGGVP.
EGGVP acts as a reliable partner for advice on the regulatory environment and animal health policies. The EGGVP experts provide broad and in-depth expertise and, by means of participation in the various Working Groups and Task Forces, they contribute to elaborate EGGVP positions.
EGGVP membership is mainly composed of small and medium sized companies (SMEs), representing an industry that has more than 5000 direct employees in the EU and a sales turnover of over €1.3 billion per annum.
EGGVP started as a small association of 7 members when it was founded in 2002. Today, EGGVP has become a high level group of 21 member companies from many different EU Member States.
