According to the European Board of Veterinary Specialisation (EBVS) rules :
Members and Associate Members of the College need to be evaluated every 5 years. A timeline with names of Diplomates and their year of recertification is available for download.
Each application will be evaluated by two members of the Recertification Committee (RCC).
Applicants are kindly invited to declare to the Chair of the Recertification Committee and the Secretary of the College Board any conflict of interest they may have with one or more members of the RCC.
The re-certification process is performed according to a credit point system, stating that the Diplomate is active in the field of Animal Welfare Science, Ethics and Law for a minimum of 24 hours a week.
The points should be accumulated from the four categories listed below:
A grid has been edited to help the Diplomate to easily achieve the recertification process. This grid is available for download.
Continuing Professional Development requirements would be fulfilled by accumulating a minimum of 100 credit points over a period of 5 years.
The Diplomate is required to gain at least 10 points in any annual period.
Years in which no points are accumulated are not acceptable without permission of the ECAWBM Re-Certification Committee.
Applications that are received having one or more fields of any of the four required main sections left empty, will be considered as incomplete application and will be returned to the candidate.
It is not permissible to miss three consecutive AGMs.
One digital copy (pdf file uploaded) of this form should be submitted to the Secretary of ECAWBM College Board and to the Chair of the AWSEL Re-Certification Committee according to the recertification schedule (download).
