News and Announcements
ECLAM Now a Registered Company in the U.K.
11 June 2018: ECLAM was approved as a Company Limited by Guarantee in the U.K., and so from now on our name is officially 'European College of Laboratory Animal Medicine, Limited'. Council chose to change our registration from France to the U.K. for practical reasons (we no longer have to translate all our changes to the Constitution and Bylaws) and to provide better legal protection should we be sued or fail financially (the liability of the Directors is 'limited' to £1 each).
ECLAM Re-Approved by EBVS
April 2018: ECLAM has been re-approved for 5 years by the European Board of Veterinary Specialisation. ECLAM was praised for our website, examination invigilation procedures, and 5-year strategic plan!
