The regulatory controls under the Health Products (Therapeutic Products) Regulations are only applicable to TP intended for use in humans.
Your supply of any products (including TP) at retail pharmacies and/or by wholesalers for the eventual use in animals comes under the purview of the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA).Therefore, the supply and the conditions pertaining to such supply for use in animals must fulfil the requirements stipulated by AVA.
In general, HSA-licensed retail pharmacies and wholesalers may continue to supply TP for animal use based on valid veterinary prescriptions and signed (purchase) orders from Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority (AVA)-licensed veterinarians, veterinary clinics, feedmills, farms and AVA-registered wholesalers* which are supplying TP solely for veterinary use.
*The “List of Registered Wholesalers of Therapeutic Products for Veterinary Purposes” can be located by selecting “Circulars” and “Pets & Animals” under the search function in the AVA newsroom webpage.
