This document provides guidance on the need for, role and timing of studies in juvenile animals in the non-clinical safety evaluation of medicinal products for paediatric use. It is applicable to initial medicinal products applications and also to authorised medicinal products being further developed to include paediatric indications. It outlines potential safety concerns that cannot be adequately assessed in the adult population, in standard non-clinical studies, or in clinical trials.
