The annual renewal fee for individual veterinary surgeons as well as the annual fee for veterinary practice premises are now due for payment by 1 April 2022. If you have not received your renewal notice by the 14 March, please contact the Registration Department.
As well as paying the fee, veterinary surgeons also need to renew their registration by logging on to the RCVS My Account area to confirm their details; declare if they have any convictions, cautions or adverse findings; and confirm that they have complied with the continuing professional development (CPD) requirement of 35 hours in 2021. Those who do not have a Direct Debit set up, or the employer is not paying their fee, will also need to pay their fee via the My Account area.
Please note that if the fee is not paid by 1 May 2022 then an extra £35 charge will be added to the cost of the annual renewal fee. Those who fail to pay on or before 31 May 2022 will be removed from the Register of Veterinary Surgeons and will not be allowed to practise legally as a veterinary surgeon until they are restored to the Register.
Also due by 1 April 2022 is the annual Register of Veterinary Practice Premises (RVPP) fee of £35. In accordance with the Veterinary Medicines Regulations 2013, veterinary surgeons may only supply veterinary medicinal products (excluding AVM-GSL products) from veterinary practice premises on the RVPP. The RVPP fee only applies to practice premises that are not RCVS-accredited practices within the Practice Standards Scheme. RCVS-accredited practices will be contacted by the Practice Standards Team about their annual fee. Invoices will be posted to premises the week commencing the 7 March.
If you have any questions regarding completing your annual renewal fee or the RVPP fee please contact the Registration Department on [email protected] or 020 7202 0707, and a member of the team will do everything they can to assist you.
If you, or your employer, have a query about your payment or submitting a remittance form for either fee please contact the Finance Department on [email protected] or 020 7202 0723.
