With the USDA APHIS Veterinary Services new guidance document, VS Guidance 15201.1, all EIA tests must comply with the current federally approved EIA forms or systems by April 15, 2020.

After working directly with the USDA to ensure compliance, we have made several updates to the GVL platform and our EIA test certificates.

In addition to some data field changes, all GVL EIA test certificates now include the following statement: “Official EIA Test Form, Approved by USDA Veterinary Services MAR2020, GVL"

Here are links to references provided by the USDA in regards to these updates:
