Good professional standing

Once you have passed the statutory membership examination, you will be able to register as a member of the RCVS, provided that our Registration department has received and approved a letter or certificate and/or other documents attesting to your good standing.

You must provide the RCVS with up-to-date evidence of your good standing, each time you apply to sit our examination.

As evidence of good standing we accept only original, signed letters/certificates/other documents that are dated on or after 1 October in the year which precedes your exam year.

If you have any queries about how to meet our requirement, please complete the form at the bottom of this page. You should send your completed form as an email attachment to
