Public Consultation (Cap. 529)

Dear Members,

The HKVA was approached by the Food and Health Bureau and the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department on 23rd November, 2020 for assistance in forwarding the letter and comment form to our members.

The letter and comment form concerns a public consultation on proposed amendments to Schedule 2 to the Veterinary Surgeons Registration Ordinance (Cap. 529) with a view to permitting veterinary students to perform acts of veterinary surgery under direct and continuous supervision of a registered veterinary surgeon, so as to facilitate the training of veterinary students. The consultation exercise will last until 22 January, 2021.

I understand that registered veterinary surgeons in Hong Kong were notified in November, 2020 by email and I am urging you to send in your comments before the due date.

If you have any inquiries please forward them to

Best regards,

Tom Mangan
HKVA President
