e-Reg Monitor Service

When necessary, UVSA works with the government to represent our member's interests and keep our members informed on legislative issues impacting the animal health industry.  Members have access to a regulations and legislative database that tracks federal and state changes called the e-Reg Monitor Service.  This service is available to UVSA members at a significantly discounted rate.

In today’s regulatory environment, pharmaceutical, distribution and healthcare companies are faced with constant changes in federal and state legislation and regulations that affect everyday business.  Although no common governance exists among the states, the states do maintain similarities in the way they define and regulate key areas of pharmaceutical marketing practices as well as licensing and distribution activities.  To better understand the impact of these state-by-state regulations IQVIA’s E-Reg Monitor Service offers two surveys to assist the industry in monitoring these emerging issues.

UVSA members who subscribe to the E-Reg Monitor Service have access to an online tool that provides legislative and regulatory updates on Drug Distribution and Drug Pedigree laws on the Federal level and in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Subscribing members have 24/7 access to the service and receive e-mail notification when updates are available.  The annual subscription fee for UVSA members is now $4,000 per UVSA member company. Companies subscribing to this service would individually pay in excess of $10,500 per survey, annually.

UVSA Members who have logged on to the E-Reg Monitor Service find it easy to use and check it regularly for updates. Periodic tutorials are presented by IQVIA and UVSA staff and UVSA members are welcome to ask questions during and after the webinars. 

UVSA member companies are eligible to subscribe to the following surveys:
