The 2018 edition of the NOAH Compendium of Data Sheets for Animal Medicines has been published and a free copy of the book posted to every veterinary practice in the UK.
A special edition of the book for SQPs, commissioned by AMTRA, will be available shortly, NOAH said.
The data sheets can be easily accessed through colour-coded indexes and the book includes the latest edition of NOAH’s Code of Practice for the Promotion of Animal Medicines.
NOAH chief executive Dawn Howard said: “The NOAH Compendium remains a major part of NOAH’s efforts to assist the appropriate and responsible use of all animal medicines.
“Every NOAH member, as well as the non-member participants in the NOAH Compendium, is a signatory to the NOAH Code of Practice on Promotion, which demonstrates their commitment to operate above and beyond any regulatory requirements.”
Ms Howard added: “As always, our free of charge web-based Compendium, which is updated regularly, contains the most up-to-date information. If you have not been on the website lately you will see we have introduced a ‘Company Directory’ as well as ‘datasheets by company’, as well as improving the facility of the site to print individual datasheets.”
NOAH has highlighted that the app version has been temporarily suspended while certain technical difficulties are resolved.
Ms Howard said: “We have recently faced an unexpected issue with the NOAH Compendium App and have temporarily suspended the App’s availability on both the Apple store and Google Play.”
“The app is currently being updated and we are working to get it back online as soon as possible. If you have already downloaded the App, please note there will be no further updates to the information until we can resolve the issue, and the information it displays may not be the most recent update.”
