Recertification

Recertification for Diplomates

Coronavirus / COVID-19

Due to the restrictions the COVID-19 pandemic has caused, particularly with reductions in surgical case-loads and cancelled meetings, there are revised guidelines for those recertifying this year and for the subsequent years through to 2024.

For everybody who is due to recertify in 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023, and 2024 the deadline will be postponed by one year.

We will review the documentation of those diplomates who have already submitted their files this year in the usual manner. If approved, their next recertification period will be six years rather than the customary five.

Please note the submission deadline is July 31st

Contact information: Please direct all correspondence pertaining to Diplomate recertification at [email protected]. This will ensure that your message reaches the right person and can also be dealt with in case of personal absences.

All Diplomates due to recertify should read the recertification guidelines and will receive several reminders before their deadline. To find your recertification form for the online submission, you need to log in with your email address and your password. Once logged in, go to “your ECVS recertification status” and “apply for recertification online”.

From 2024 onwards, the two previously required reference letters will be replaced with a self-declaration form. The self-declaration form (PDF) must be submitted together with the online recertification form. The template is also available for download from the online recertification form (accessible via 'your ECVS').


Recertification of Residency Training Programmes

Contact information: Please direct all correspondence pertaining to programme recertification at [email protected] (NOT [email protected]). This will assure that your message reaches the right person and can also be dealt with in case of personal absences.

A residency programme has to be resubmitted for approval after a five year period in general. For the recertification of the training programme we need an update on the 9 programme elements including the log form (rtf): Small animal / Large animal

Please use the reporting forms for the recertficiation submission and consult the the Training Brochure (chapter 6) for the definition of the 9 programme elements.

Deadline for submission is 31st March of the year in which recertification is due.

Please be aware that all changes in an approved programme have to be communicated to the Credentials Committee without delay. Especially changes in supervisors need to be reported to the committee.
