OVs can electronically receive notifications
and submit TB test results to AHVLA.
See the advantages and how to register page
for more information.
The service status is manually updated when there are Issues or Planned Maintenance which may affect Sam and/or the Government Gateway.
TB2 Notices must not be served from 6 April 2014. In any instance where you would previously have served a TB2 Notice, automatic restrictions now apply. Owners/keepers must be informed of results and handed a TB181 information note.

To minimise potential disruption users are reminded that they can download a Working Form from Sam in Excel. Test data can be captured in excel and uploaded back into Sam later. Guidance on using excel can be found in Section 10, Part 2 and Section 12 of the Sam Official Veterinarian Practice Guide and the online e-learning module.
