Who We Are

The Animal Ultrasound Association is a community interest company (CIC), formed in April 2016 in response to a growing need to promote responsible scanning. The AUA provide end-users with a means to distinguish trained professionals from untrained to ensure quality of service and the safety of their animals, and protect the investment of professional scanners in obtaining their training, qualifications and equipment. In short, the AUA exists to protect:

  • Responsible, professional scanners
  • Pet owners, breeders and farmers
  • The safety of our animals



What is a CIC?

A CIC “exists to benefit the community rather than private shareholders.” By existing as a CIC and not as a for-profit limited company, it is our promise to you that every penny of your membership fee goes towards promoting and protecting our members across the UK.

As a CIC, the company’s assets can only be used for its social objectives. In our case, that is to protect professional scanners, their clients, and of course their animals.

As a CIC, in the event that the company were ever wound up, assets would be transferred to our chosen non-profit beneficiary: the Wildlife Aid Foundation.

As a CIC, our financial activities are overseen by Regulator for Community Interest Companies, through submission of an annual public interest report. There is complete transparency as to our spending of funds.

What are membership funds spent on?

Membership fees are spent on supporting our members through:
Promoting member pages and the website directory – SEO and Google Adwords services. Campaigns will be carefully targeted around the areas in which our members operate

Continued development and maintenance of the website

Occasional magazine advertising – with input/guidance from our members
Free or subsidised Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for members
Membership identification and advertising

Access better rates on relevant products and services for our members – such as insurance, web design and printing.
