Information Update on Veterinary Antimicrobial Sales Reporting for the Year 2019 - from the Veterinary Drugs Directorate

Apr 2, 2020

In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, we are writing to inform manufacturers, importers and compounders of medically important antimicrobials for veterinary use that the Veterinary Antimicrobial Sales Reporting (VASR) online system will remain open to accept sales report submissions until June 30, 2020. We acknowledge that the March 31 regulatory reporting timeframe may not be feasible due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on normal business operations and personnel.

We would like to thank those who have already submitted their annual sales reports for the year 2019.

Should you have any questions about reporting requirements, email the Veterinary Drugs Directorate at or visit our Veterinary Antimicrobial Sales Reporting web page for more information. Please feel free to share this email with the members of your organizations.

Thank you and kind regards,
Veterinary Drugs Directorate
