Accredited Veterinarians (AVs) [or AV Support Staff or Exporter] can initiate the work flow for creating a VS Export Health Certificate. There are multiple ways to create a health certificate and submit it to VS for endorsement.  They are initiated using the Create Certificate link on the left menu and include:

1.Using VEHCS defined Step by Step screens
2.Using Universal Step by Step screens
3.Using PDF Health Certificate Upload screens

Each work flow begins on the Certificate Content step screen; based on the user’s selections, VEHCS presents the subsequent screens and guides the user through inputting the information required to submit the health certificate.  See the description below for the creation work flow.

NOTE: If you would like to finish and submit the certificate at a later time, you may save the certificate as a work in progress.  You may also save the certificate as a template.

The items at the top of the Creation of an International Animal Export Health Certificate page are available at any time while creating a certificate.  The fields include the following:

Tracking #

Tracking numbers are populated immediately when you enter the General page.  This number can be used later for retrieval of the associated certificate while it is a work in progress or for monitoring the movement of the certificate, from submission through endorsement and completion.

Certificate Content

Displays the type of the certificate.  This includes the Destination Country, Commodity Type, Intended Use, and Type of Admission as appropriate.

Save as Work in Progress

At any time during the certificate creation process, you may save your work for completion in the future.
When you click the Save as Work in Progress button, a date and time displays on the screen.
You may save a certificate to be used as a template for future certificates.  Saving as a template will allow you to generate future certificates using most of the current certificate's information without having to manually re-enter the information.

Save as Template

At any time during the certificate creation process, you may save your work as a template.
A certificate template simplifies creating a new certificate by reusing existing information, such as consignors and consignees.  To save the current certificate as a template, click the Save As Template button, enter a template name, and click the Save button.

NOTE: Some information, such as the Commodity Details List, will not be saved in the template.

View Certificate Draft

At any time during the certificate creation process, you may select the View Certificate Draft tab in the upper right corner of the screen to display a draft version of the certificate.  A new browser window opens and the draft certificate is displayed in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF).

Close

At any time during the certificate creation process, you may select the Close tab in the upper right corner of the screen to close the certificate.

Delete

Use to delete a certificate at any time in the creation process (before submitting the certificate to the VS Field Office).
