Union of European Veterinary Hygienists UEVH

At a meeting of public health veterinarians held in Paris during October 1966, the decision was taken to create an European organisation called the 'Association européenne des directeurs d'abattoirs publics'.

The first General Assembly of this new veterinary organisation was held on the 1st July 1967 in Geneva.

During 1976, the Association changed its statutes in order to become eligible for membership of the Federation of Veterinarians of Europe and adopted its current name.
