Appointment onto the comittee is for a period of 3 years and is comprised of 2 farmer representatives nominated by deer industry levy payers and approved by the NZDFA Council; and 2 veterinarians nominated and approved by the New Zealand Veterinary Association ('NZVA').  The administrative work to support the NVSB is carried out by the Deer Industry New Zealand ('DINZ') Executive, subject to funding approval from the Board of DINZ. The costs of running the NVSB's registration, supervision and audit programmes are directly recovered from velvetters applying for registration and who are registered.
