FEI introduces ID cards for all Veterinarians at Events
Details for all FEI Veterinarians to have a vailid ID card for all FEI events.
The FEI has announced the introduction of an ID card and online exam for veterinarians working at FEI events focusing on the FEI Veterinary and Equine Anti-Doping and Controlled Medication Regulations.
The new system will come into effect on 1 June 2012.
Competitors’ Private Veterinarians, Team Veterinarians and Treating Veterinarians who are appointed by Organising Committees will be required to pass the online exam.
Veterinarians who wish to work at FEI events must fulfil FEI eligibility requirements. These requirements are outlined in the FEI produced document and can be found by clicking here
Veterinarians can apply to complete the exam through EA.
Existing FEI Official Veterinarians (including Veterinary Delegates, Testing Veterinarians and Head Treatment Vets) are currently exempt from the examination requirement, providing they download their FEI Official Veterinarian ID cards before 31 December 2012. The FEI Official Veterinarian ID card will allow these veterinarians to work either as an FEI Official Veterinarian or as a Permitted Treating Veterinarian at an event.
The exam and ID card are free of charge and reference documents are available online to encourage understanding of the key FEI Veterinary Regulations, Equine Anti-Doping and Controlled Medication Regulations and General Regulations.
The simple process has been designed with busy practicing vets in mind, for instance, candidates can save their progress and complete the exam later should they be interrupted.
The documents listed below are published by the FEI and provide more information on the processes involved.
