The VMD has recognised Vetpol as a suitable body to maintain a register for suitably qualified persons (SQPs).

An SQP is a professionally qualified person who is allowed to prescribe, supply and advise on the safe use of veterinary medicines classified as POM-VPS and NFA-VPS, for example worming and flea treatments.

This recognition means that Vetpol has demonstrated it can fulfil the requirements of the Veterinary Medicines Regulations.

Vetpol joins the Animal Medicines Training Regulatory Authority and VetSkill as the third body approved to maintain a register of SQPs.
