The Regulation mainly relates to the annual general meeting that will commence in 2019 under Section 92 of the Act.
Schedule 1 of the Regulation contains the Restricted Acts of Veterinary Science that have been modelled on those in NSW. These will the subject of a review in 2019. The Board encourages you to watch out for your opportunity to provide comments during consultation.
The Standards, established under Section 72 of the Act, requires that all veterinary premises in the ACT must make an application for registration under the new legislation from May 2019. The Standards are to be used as a guideline for the minimum acceptable requirements for veterinary premises.
More information on premises registration can be found on the premises registration page.
The Code of Conduct, established under Section 42 of the Act, establishes the standard of conduct veterinary practitioners must adhere to when practicing veterinary science.
The Code of Conduct will be used by the Board to assess complaints. It also provides veterinary practitioners with information on appropriate conduct.
