Following her election as chair of NOAH for 2015, Catherine (Cat) Sayer asked industry stakeholders to recognise NOAH’s achievements and get involved in the association at the centre of “our dynamic and ever evolving sector”.

Speaking at the NOAH annual dinner in London on May 21, Cat outlined the association’s achievements over the past year – particularly the publication of the proposed Veterinary Medicines and Medicated Feed Regulations by the European Commission and their progression through the European consultation process.

She said: “The last time any changes were implemented to the Veterinary Medicines Regulations was nine years ago and as long as 25 years ago for the Medicated Feed Regulations. With such duration of legislation when implemented, it’s important this legislation will continue to support the potential for new medicines, as it will shape our industry for years to come, once in place.”

She called on the NOAH membership and guests at the dinner to become involved with NOAH’s activities: “Not only as members and industry stakeholders should we ask what NOAH can do for us but we should also recognise its continued achievements on our behalf, as well as asking how we can become involved either in or jointly with the association at the centre of our dynamic and ever evolving sector, especially at such a time of critical review and change, likely to influence many years to come.

“It is clear from the achievements of the association to date that industry would be the poorer without these benefits brought since its launch at the House of Commons in 1986 and next year we will be able to celebrate these more fully when NOAH reaches its milestone of 30 years.”

Director of Forum Animal Health, Cat has a broad experience across the key animal medicine market sectors of companion animal, equine and pigs. She has been a member of the NOAH Board since 2011 and vice-chair for the past two years.
