The Animal Medicine Training Regulatory Authority (AMTRA) has presented Virbac’s technical director with a long-service award in recognition of 25 years with the regulatory body.
Mr Taylor began working with AMTRA, an independent regulatory body that ensures the prescription and supply of VPS animal medicines in the UK is undertaken in a responsible manner, in 1990.
He has since made a significant contribution to the educational and training provided to AMTRA suitably qualified persons (SQPs). He acted as an assessor of SQP candidates and later became chairman of AMTRAs’ education committee. He was also an architect of AMTRA’s qualification for representatives of the pharmaceutical companies.
Mr Taylor was presented with his award by AMTRA chairman Phil Sketchley during a National Office of Animal Health (NOAH) dinner in London.
AMTRA secretary general Stephen Dawson said: “I am very grateful to Chris for his extensive and valuable contributions over such a long period. Chris has helped to set the standards for both SQPs and pharmaceutical company representatives, ensuring medicines continue to be sold and used responsibly.”
