European Board for Veterinary Specialisation
A Co-ordinating Committee for Veterinary Specialisation was initially to be set up by the ACVT, but this was abandoned in view of the subsidiarity principle of the Maastricht Treaty (1992). Instead, a European Board of Veterinary Specialisation (EBVS) was established with help from the EAVS. Members of the EBVS are representatives from the recognised colleges. Each college has to appoint one representative and one alternative representative. Observers from ABVS, EAEVE and FVE are invited to the AGM. The EBVS has an Executive Committee with five members to carry out descisions made by the board during the AGMs. The EBVS annual meeting is held once a year in spring.
The main objectives and duties of the EBVS are:
- To recognise new speciality Colleges
- Set up and maintain a register of European veterinary specialists
- Assure the quality of these specialists by monitoring the Colleges.
- Encourage and promote the enhanced utilisation and availability of speciality services to the public and the veterinary profession
