You can find more information on the EU-legislation on animal identification and registration on the website of DG SANTE.


In addition to the information on animal holdings (and the responsible holders), the Sanitel database also contains information on:

  • The animals themselves (bovines only);
  • The movements of animals (from/to holdings: e.g. farm, assembly centre, trader, slaughterhouse);
  • The farm veterinarian;
  • The sanitary risk status regarding several official and non-official diseases and residues (veterinary medicines, contaminants and hormonal products).
