If you wish to be authorized to perform accredited duties in States other than the State in which you were first accredited, you are required to complete a VS Form 1-36A for each additional State and submit an original application to the appropriate NVAP Coordinator. (Original signature is required.) You are required to be licensed or legally able to practice in each additional State where you seek authorization to perform accredited duties. You may be required to attend a State-specific orientation program that covers animal health issues for each State in which you seek authorization. The accredited veterinarian must receive a letter of authorization from the APHIS Veterinary Medical Officer before accredited duties may be done.
