Pre-approved indicators for caprine (goat) and cervid

Alert

There is currently no regulatory requirement under Part XV of the Health of Animals Regulations for the identification of caprine or cervid species. Proposed amendments to those Regulations would introduce a requirement for the identification of caprine and cervid species.

The indicators listed here for caprine and cervid would be approved for caprine and cervid under the proposed amendments to Part XV of the Health of Animals Regulations.

Pre-approved indicators for caprine (goat)

The means of identifying animals listed below are pre-approved indicators for caprine.

Pre-approved technology:
FDX, HDX and non-electronic
Pre-approved manner to identify:
(a) ear tag with marking and identification number facing forward; (b) leg band with marking and identification number, and; (c) indicator applied to the tail web with marking and identification number.
Scope of approval:
The indicators bearing an ISO 11784 number listed under this section would be approved for all types of domestic movement of caprine and caprine carcasses, and their export.
