Cognizant of the authority of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to call upon the assistance of any department, office or agency under Section 30, paragraph 5 of Republic Act (RA) No. 3720 as amended by RA No. 9711, a partnership was forged between FDA and the Department of Agriculture-Bureau of Animal Industry (DA-BAI) in the regulation of selected veterinary establishments, drugs, and products by virtue of the Joint Department of Agriculture (DA) and Department of Health (DOH) Administrative Order (JAO) No. 2013-0026: Rules on the Regulation of Veterinary Drugs and Products, Veterinary Biological Products, and Veterinary Drug Establishments. The JAO No. 2013-0026 was effective for five years, until its expiration last September 2018. The delegation of regulation of veterinary establishments and products under the jurisdiction of the FDA began way back in late 1990 through a JAO between the DOH and DA Secretaries.
