First of all, as we are still in January, I would like to wish you all a very happy and successful 2022, full of projects for our organization and above all, safe and healthy for every one of you.

In 2022, the revision of the Animal Welfare Regulations at European level will be very important for our profession. The ongoing decisions of the European Parliament regarding on-farm animal welfare is key for a successful outcome.

With VAT Directive under revision, our profession may have the opportunity to become more accessible to clients as it could give the opportunity to apply lower rates for Veterinary Medicine Products and services to live equines.   The decision on whether to apply the lower rate is at the discretion of each Member State.

Also this year, we will keep a close watch on the initiatives concerning the digitisation of veterinary controls (and of the food chain) after the publication of the report on the subject during the Slovenian Presidency of the Council
