A licence defines the need to obtain recognition / certification and registration to undertake a certain business activity.
Definition of terms

designated as veterinary: rooms, surgery, clinic, hospital, centre, practice or similar.
Prior to making application, you must have perused the Board's Minimum Standards of Veterinary Premises.
You must also confirm whether local council approval for establishment of business is required and seek Department of Health approval for use and possession of radiology equipment.
The approval remains current as long as the premises meet the required standards and your approval is not suspended or cancelled.

If the practice is sold and the minimum standards are being met, the premises remain approved while they exist at that address.
