Horses must be microchipped ahead of 12 February 2021 deadline

The Equine Identification Regulations came into force in February 2019 which sets out requirements to identify horses, ponies, donkeys or related animals with a microchip and passport ahead of the 12 February 2021 deadline.

Welsh Government will be writing to all equine keepers outlining what to do in due course.

Please make arrangements with your vet to microchip your animals and to update the corresponding passports with the microchip numbers.

Please also get in touch with your local Passport Issuing Organisation (PIO) as there needs to be sufficient time to process and return the passports before the deadline.
