Accreditation Program for Australian Veterinarians

The Accreditation Program for Australian Veterinarians (APAV) is a national program designed to integrate private veterinary practitioners into the national animal health system to support the international standing of Australia’s animal health service capability. The program aims to have an internationally recognised process for accrediting non-government veterinarians for involvement in government and industry animal disease programs (operational programs).

Accreditation under APAV provides the opportunity for private veterinarians to expand their services and participate in government sponsored programs such as Market Assurance Programs (MAP)and the Australian Government Accredited Veterinarian program (AAV)
