EU Commission Issues Guidance Document on Embalming & Taxidermist Products

Guidance document on the evaluation of efficacy of embalming products (PT22)

These Technical Notes for Guidance were endorsed during the 52nd CA meeting for release for a 6-month consultation period of stakeholders.
All comments should be sent to by 31 December 2013.

At the end of this consultation period, these Technical Notes for Guidance would, if appropriate, be revised on the basis of the comments received.

In 2012, FR published a national guidance for efficacy and as discussed in TMII 2012, this guidance was translated and FR proposes to submit it for comments to other Member States. The purpose is to include it to the Appendices to chapter 7 from TNsG on Product Evaluation. Indeed, at the moment, no appendice for PT22 exist.

This guidance was presented at TM I 2013 for the first time and, after some minor revisions, again at TMII2013. At this last TM, this guidance has endorsed.

The Competent Authorities are requested to agree that this Guidance Document should now be released for a six-month consultation of stakeholders.
