In upholding its responsibility to protect the public, the MVMA sets minimum standards for veterinary practices. These minimum standards and inspection requirements are set out in the MVMA Practice Inspection and Practice Standards By-Law.
Each PIPS inspected Practice is required to complete a self-inspection in the following scenarios:
Change to Practice
When a self-inspection has been conducted as a result of a change to practice, the practice will be granted a 6-month temporary certificate. Within the 6-month period, an MVMA PIPS inspector will contact the practice to arrange for an inspection. Upon successful completion of the MVMA PIPS inspection, the practice will be provided with a 3-year certificate.
Self-Inspection Fee – $180+ gst = $189
MVMA PIPS Inspector Inspection fee – $475 + gst = $498.75
Inspections, whether conducted by self-inspection or conducted by an MVMA PIPS inspector, are meant as a point in time marker that a practice meets and/or exceeds the minimum standards as outlined in the PIPS By-Law. Each practice must meet and/or exceed these standards every day.
