How to Have Your Accreditation Reinstated

If you did not renew your accreditation by your assigned accreditation renewal date (ARD) or did not elect to participate (ETP) in the new NVAP by October 1, 2011, your accreditation has expired. Do not perform accredited duties until you receive notification of your reinstatement from APHIS. Veterinarians who perform accredited duties while their accredited status has expired will be subject to such criminal and civil penalties as are provided by the Animal Health Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 8301 et seq .) or other applicable Federal statutes or regulations.
