How do I remove my name from the Register?

If your circumstances have changed and you would like to remove your name from the Register, then you can do this online via 'My Account' as part of your annual renewal, as well as at any point during the year.

Vets: Please ensure you remove your name before 30 April or you will need to pay a proportion of the fee for the new registration year.

Where no voluntary removal request is received before 1 June (vets) or 1 January (VNs) then your name will be removed for non-payment. Please note this may affect the fee you pay, should you need to restore to the Register. 

All removals from the Register must be approved by a member of the Registration Department and may take up to three working days to be approved. You will receive confirmation by email once your name has been removed.

Please note, if you are off the RCVS Register for more than 12 months, you will need to produce confirmation of your good standing before your name can be restored to the Register again. A certified translation of the certificate (or letter) will also be required if it is not issued in English.
