Food Safety & Traceability
The European Union aims to assure the highest level of food safety and animal health through coherent “farm to table” measures and ongoing monitoring.
EU regulation 820/97 establishes a regime of individual traceability of cattle by means of
- Individual calf tagging with 2 tags.
- An individual passport to record all farm movements and health history during its lifetime.
- Reporting of animal movements on the Animal Identification and Movement System (AIM).
