Passport for cattle
The passport is issued by the Animal Identification and Registration Office (SIR) based on the registration in the CRG.
The passport for cattle is a document issued at the birth of cattle, the receipt of cattle from EU Member States and the import of cattle from third countries and accompanies cattle until their death or export to third countries.
The owner of cattle keeps passports on the farm holding where the cattle are located. If the cattle are relocated, it must be accompanied by valid passports.
The passports indicate basic data on the animals (identification number, birth data, data on the first owner). The first owner to whom the cattle passport was issued guarantees with their signature that the data on the passport are accurate.
Every following owner of cattle must enter data on their farm holding, date of receipt of cattle in the passport immediately after receiving them, and sign themselves. Hereby the passport for cattle becomes valid. The appropriate fields of the passport must contain the relocations to pasture and joint grazing meadows as well as fairs and exhibitions.
The owner of cattle requests a passport for cattle by registering cattle in the central register of cattle (CRG). In 14 days after a successful registration, the owner receives a passport.
