Policy Committee

The Policy Committee (PC) is a standing committee of BVA Council and exists to advise Council on all veterinary policy matters, including animal health and welfare, public health, and veterinary professional issues. PC sets up working groups on proactive policy work. PC receives advice from the Ethics and Welfare Advisory Panel (EWAP).
