The Veterinary Products Committee, which advises Defra on veterinary medicinal products and animal feed additives, is seeking applicants for ten vacancies, including one veterinary surgeon.

The committee meets three times a year, typically in February, May and September, to consider issues relating to the marketing authorisations for veterinary medicines and animal test certificates, and reports of suspected adverse events relating to veterinary medicines. 

Meetings are held at offices of the Veterinary Medicines Directorate in Surrey. On occasion the committee holds additional ad-hoc meetings. 

Members of the committee are paid £148 for each meeting, plus £76 for preparation time.
