What is an SQP?

SQP stands for Suitably Qualified Person and means those personnel who are registered with AMTRA and have passed the required examinations may, therefore supply veterinary medicinal products classified as POM-VPS and NFA-VPS from retail businesses with premises that are registered to be able to hold and supply veterinary medicinal products.

The duties of an SQP are varied and controlled by the VMD (Veterinary Medicines Directorate) and as such require us to be vigilant when we prescribe or supply your worming requirements. It for such reason that we ask for many particulars when you are ordering your worming products and often take the time to remind you to keep updated with all the product literature and instructions for use.

We take these responsibilities very seriously and by doing so hope to give you, the animal owners and keepers, the very best service along with technical and common sense expertise.
