Note: to complete your registration your employer or representative of your employer must confirm your right to work and eligibility for the qualification. For an ATT candidate other representatives are permitted to confirm eligibility (see below).

For a CSO candidate this confirmation must be provided by a Certifying Officer (CO) who is either an Official Veterinarian holding the OCQ(V) - PX (Product Exports) qualification or Food Competent Certifying Officer (FCCO).

For ATT candidates, the confirmation of eligibility can also be confirmed by someone who is not your employer. If this is the case the person must be a veterinary surgeon who is a Member or Fellow of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (MRCVS/FRCVS). ATTs must note that a further declaration of eligibility will be required from a nominated Approved Veterinary Supervisor (AVS) following completion of the theory training and before any practical training can commence.

Current FCCOs can revalidate their existing authorisation by claiming grandfather rights on the FCCO course via the 'please select your intention following registration' option below.
