How to apply for accreditation

Vet at computerPreparation

  • Ensure all premises within the practice group are registered for the purposes of the Register of Veterinary Practice Premises (RVPP). All practice premises within the practice group must be assessed.

  • Please download the Practice Standards Modules, Rules of the Scheme and the PSS Handbook from the 'Related documents' box for details on the standards that must be met and other key information.



  • All practices must pay an application fee and initial assessment fee. The initial assessment fee covers one assessment day, should the visit take more than one day to complete we will issue an invoice to cover the costs of the additional days.
  • Once all premises are accredited, an annual Practice Standards Scheme fee will be due by the April following accreditation and every year thereafter. This annual fee includes the Register of Veterinary Practice Premises renewal fee.
