On Tuesday, March 26, the government approved the procedure for the registration of agricultural and aquaculture animals, their herds and holdings and the marking of farm animals prepared by the Ministry of Agriculture.
The Regulations prescribe the procedures by which the Agricultural Data Center (LDC) is to ensure the registration of agricultural and aquaculture animals, their herds and holdings and the marking of livestock, thereby creating the preconditions for an accurate traceability of the movement of agricultural and aquaculture animals and outbreaks of their diseases.
As the electronic register is regularly updated and supplemented by the LDC, the new rules provide for the replacement of paper forms by direct input of data into an electronic database. This will significantly reduce the administrative burden and reduce the time and resources involved in submitting documents to both animal owners, holders and other stakeholders. In addition, data entry errors will decrease with the help of the electronic notification system.
In order to reduce the administrative burden, the reporting for the number of pigs in the herd for self–consumption only, will have to be made twice a year. The sheep, goats, horses and cattle owners will no longer have to report the castration of the animals, and the movement authorization number will not be required in the accompanying documents.
The cadastral number will also have to be indicated in the holding register – it will be entered by LDC-adding data from the State Land Service database. The new regulations also provide that the LDC will supplement the site register with data on the way animals are kept and manure management.
