You will require this accreditation if you are a veterinarian intending to conduct animal health procedures and certification for Approved Export Programs (AEPs).
AEPs are issued to exporters preparing livestock consignments for export. As part of an AEP, an Australian Accredited Veterinarian (AAV) is required for the preparation of animals for export and during an export voyage to undertake work, including:
- pre-export testing and treatment of livestock whilst in isolation or quarantine
- testing and treatment of livestock as specified by the importing country
- inspections of livestock to evaluate them for signs of disease and fitness to travel.
