European Association of State Veterinary Officers

EASVO was founded in 1980 and represents veterinary inspectors and Official Veterinarians, most of whom are employed in State Veterinary Services.

Whilst veterinarians in practice (our colleagues in UEVP) are the sector of the veterinary profession best known to the public, we have a key role in protecting public and animal health and welfare.

All veterinarians receive a thorough basic training, encompassing all animal species and diseases, and our members then specialize in one or more particular disciplines to deliver this role (e.g. epidemiology, animal welfare and ethics, transboundary diseases, delivery of Official Controls).

Today EASVO has 18 member organisation and one observer member and represents veterinarians working for our national governments from all over Europe.

Our mission

State Veterinary Officers' Voices

EASVO members are involved in national disease eradication programs, the protection of public health, food and animal health/welfare inspections. Some are employed at border inspection posts, checking the health and certificates of imported and exported animals or products of animal origin.

They may also help to elaborate or implement legislation regarding these domains, or work in State veterinary laboratories.


State Veterinary Officers' Important Roles

Veterinary Officers play an important role in the eradication and prevention of disease in animals and in the protection of Public Health on a national and European level. They are also called to advise the government and work in conjunction with practicing veterinarians in case of notifiable disease outbreaks.

Our vision

Ensuring the well-being of humans and animals

We live in a rapidly changing world where many people and animals are living closely together and can travel rapidly between countries and continents. Veterinarians, united in EASVO, are at the centre of this world and guard and protect the well-being and welfare of humans and animals. This is achieved by ensuring the safe production of food and feed, and preventing or containing diseases and zoonosis, all in line with the principle of “ One Health”.

EASVO is a member of FVE

FVE is the European representative body for the veterinary profession in Europe. FVE’s mission is to enhance animal health, animal welfare, public health and the protection of the environment by promoting the veterinary profession.
