In order to address these problems a course will be arranged at the beginning of the next season for all veterinarians to discuss the matter and ascertain the best way to tackle the situation. It is intended that the federation will establish a "List of Approved Veterinarians", only members of which will be authorized to undertake the above functions.

This is often due to the lack of experience of the veterinarian incompleting such documents or to their limited knowledge of the English language.
Note: FEI regularly refer in its various regulations to "Veterinarians approved by their National Federation". By introducing such a list the federation is, therefore, conforming to existing FEI requirements.
