Our policy positions

How we formulate policy

The Policy Committee (PC) leads the development of BVA policy and sets up working groups on proactive policy work. PC receives advice from the Ethics and Welfare Advisory Panel (EWAP) and liaises closely with our divisions and our branches in WalesScotland and Northern Ireland. BVA Council is the final arbiter.


Our lobbying activity

To ensure the veterinary voice is heard around the UK and in Europe, we provide briefings and information to parliamentarians and ministers in Westminster, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and members of the European Parliament.
