A veterinary medicinal product may only be placed on the market in the European Economic Area (EEA) when a marketing authorization has been issued by the competent authority of a Member State (or EEA country) for its own territory (national authorization) or when an authorization has been granted in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 726/2004 for the entire Community (a Community authorization). The marketing authorization holder must be established within the EEA.
