OSAF Veterinarians and Official Racing Analysts and Equine Welfare Committee is composed of official racing veterinarians and analysts from OSAF member racetracks, and its mission is to promote the regional harmonization in terms of the elimination of the use of prohibited substances and promote the control in the ethical and good practice of therapeutic medication in Thoroughbreds, in breeding as well as in training and competition, in pursuit of horse welfare, the improvement of Thoroughbred breed and transparency in racing.

This task is accomplished by means of carrying out annual meetings, where sampling protocols, statistics, different technologies for monitoring and detecting substances are shared and compared, evaluating the factors which affect withdrawal times of therapeutic drugs. Regulations and local problems are compared and policies in common are agreed upon in order to achieve a regional approach, and following the recommendations set by the IFHA.
