Dubai: UAE has come up with the World’s 1st digital platform dedicated to veterinary products, E-Vet Gate.
Inaugurated by Ms. Mariam bint Mohammed Almheiri, Minister of Climate Change and the Environment (MoCCAE), E-Vet Gate will be available through the Ministry’s Website and App.
The E-Vet Gate Platform is expected to serve as a complete reference for safe and certified veterinary pharmaceutical products registered in the UAE.
The launch of E-Vet Gate is in line with MoCCAE’s mandate to implement the Federal Law No. 9 of 2017 which regulates the handling, trading, marketing, and circulation of veterinary products with an aim to restrict illegal activities across these processes.
By educating veterinarians and livestock breeders about veterinary pharmaceutical products, E-Vet Gate will try to ensure that only approved products sourced from reliable suppliers are in trade.
The move will boost animal health and productivity, safeguard public health, and keep zoonoses (infectious disease that is transmitted between species from animals to humans) at bay, strengthening biosecurity in the UAE. Improving the safety of animal-based food products will increase their contribution to local production and support the livestock sector in the country.
E-Vet Gate will be updated regularly, adding new products along with their information, such as package inserts, manufacturers, and local distributors. The user-friendly tool offers multiple channels to submit constructive suggestions.
