21 May 2003
This week the first cohort of candidates to receive their Continuing Education Certificates for Meat Inspectors were presented with their parchments by Stephen Ware, RCVS President, at an awards ceremony held at the Food Standards Agency offices in London.
The new certificates represent an on-going commitment to the training and development of Meat Hygiene Inspectors and are open to all Meat Hygiene Inspectors upon qualification.
The certificates are managed by Professor A M Johnston, current Chairman of the Editorial Board and RCVS representative, together with representatives from the Meat Hygiene Service, the Association of Meat Inspectors, the Veterinary Public Health Association, the Royal Society for the Promotion of Health and the Royal Environmental Health Institute of Scotland.
The Editorial Board reports to the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons through the SFEC Veterinary Public Health and State Veterinary Medicine Board.
After presenting the certificates to the 14 candidates present, Mr Ware offered his congratulations to them for their achievement and his sincere thanks to Professor Johnston, Professor Johnston's predecessor Mr Robert Huey, and all members of the Editorial Board, for their management of the training scheme.
