All facilities are required to meet the Essential Standards (ES). If there are exceptions to requirements these are clearly written in the standards.
To determine which Additional Scope of Practice Services (ASPS) apply to your practice, write down all the services you provide from your practice – this may be listed on your website.
Review the list of Additional Scope of Practice Services
(ASPS) and check those that match your services. There may be ASPS on the list that do apply to your practice that you may not have written down. It is important to check the ASPS list to make sure you don’t miss selecting a service you provide.
If the ASPS does not identify a species type, then it applies to all species. Some ASPS are for a specific species, such as companion animal or large animal. In that case, pick the service that applies to the species you are treating at your practice.
