Old, paper versions of the laboratory form for EIA (form number: VS 10-11) are no longer accepted by the US Department of Agriculture Veterinary Services. The most current version of the VS 10-11 form is the February 2018 revision. Electronic versions of the form that are approved by USDA will be accepted. ADDL is able to process electronic EIA forms by VSPS and Global Vet Link.

What actions are required?

Category II submitting veterinarians:

Destroy any version(s) of this form printed prior to February 2018.

Current EIA VS 10-11 forms are available free of charge from the Indiana State Board of Animal Health. Order online or contact Dawn Williams at BOAH: 317-544-2393 or by email at animalhealth@boah.in.gov.

Accurately and fully complete the form according to instructions, and uniquely identify the animal. Blank fields are not acceptable, use NA when appropriate.

The ADDL can only accept accurately and fully completed, official forms with sample submissions. Only forms received from Category II accredited veterinarians authorized to perform those duties in the state the sample was obtained will be accepted. Veterinarians that submit an outdated form after May 1, 2020, will be contacted and asked to re-submit the new version, which will result in a delay of testing.
