A friend of mine recently told me that the Seattle vaad has ruled that berries are not kosher because they might have bugs in them.

However that may be and FWIW, the Va’ad Harabanim of Greater Seattle website does have a list of berry farms at http://seattlevaad.org/kosher-portfolio/ <http://seattlevaad.org/kosher-portfolio/>.

Wikipedia has an entry on vaad (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vaad <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vaad>), saying it’s a council, but the online Oxford Dictionaries do not. Wiktionary does not have it for English, but does have a Hebrew entry at ⁨https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/ועד#Hebrew⁩ <⁨https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/%D7%95%D7%A2%D7%93#Hebrew⁩>. 

Here is a list of vaads around the world: http://www.kashrut.com/agencies/ <http://www.kashrut.com/agencies/>

1. 1946 - Google-dated; I did a search for the years from 1947 to 1951 and found nothing
The system of education of the Jewish community in Palestine: report of the Commission of Enquiry appointed by the Secretary of State for the Colonies in 1945
by Great Britain. Commission of Enquiry into the System of Education of the Jewish Community in Palestine, Baron Arnold Duncan McNair McNair

295. The following information relating to the year 1944-45 has been supplied to Us by the Va’ad Leumi.

2. Somewhere between 1956 and 1961. It appears eight times in the 1986 reprint of the book originally titled “The Vladimir Jabotinsky story”.

The Life and Times of Vladimar Jabotinsky: Rebel and statesman
by Joseph B. Schechtman

The existing “Provisional Committee of the Palestine Jews” (_Vaad Zemani_) was a very imperfect and obsolete representation.
