The Veterinary Registration Department
The veterinary registration department is a branch of the registration division at CAPA. 

The main goal of the department is the regulation of veterinary medicines which is an important part of wider efforts in society to promote the health and wellbeing of animal populations. Veterinary medicines play a vital role, both in caring for animals and in protecting public health (for example when used to ensure that food products of animal origin are safe or to prevent the spread of animal-borne diseases). It is therefore important to ensure the availability of high-quality, safe and effective medicines for veterinary use.
