GVL stores completed certificates for ten (10) years. Any user with a login can search for completed certificates for their practice based on the search criteria seen below. Though a blank search can be performed, the date MUST populated.

To Search:

  1. Under Records, select Certificates.
  2. Select the certificate type you would like to search for.
  3. Enter the billing date range using the calendar fields.
  4. Optional: Add additional search criteria.
  5. Click Search.

Definitions for Search

• Certificate Type - Select All Certs or a specific certificate type
• Billing Date Range - The date that the certificate was completed (a wide date range extending through the current date is recommend)
• Also Search By - User has the capability to select another search feature that includes the following:
• Certificate Number - Number on the top right hand corner of the certificate. Examples: EIA-123456; 14-IA-123456
• Species - Species of animal
• Origin State - State the animal(s) originated
• Owner Information - First and/or last name of the Owner/Consignor
• Issuing Veterinarian - First and/or last name of the issuing veterinarian
• Status - Status of the certificate

If a certificate type was chosen, more advanced Search options are available, which include the following:

• Premises ID - Premises ID of the origin of the animal(s)
• Carrier Information - First/last/business name of the carrier of the animal(s)
• Origin Information - First/last/business name of the origin of the animal(s)
• Destination Information - First/last/business name of the destination of the animal(s)
• Animal/Animal Group Name - Name of the animal/animal group
• Animal ID - Additional IDs of the animal(s)

The results will return certificates based on the certificate type selected and date range entered. 

• Click on the serial number to access the pdf document. (See system requirements for Adobe Reader information.)
• To email the certificate(s), hover over Actions and select Email.

Tip: The search function is very specific, and filling out just one field in the search fields will most likely return the best results. If you have an uncommon name of owner or the animal, it would be beneficial for the search, rather than a common name which may pull up multiple results.
