Imported equine on foreign passports must now also be registered with a PIO in Ireland.

New horse identification regulations came into force on January 1, 2016.

Commission Regulation EU 2015-262 requires that equine imported into Ireland on foreign passports must now also be registered with an appropriate PIO within Ireland.

Severe penalties apply for non compliance and is also a strict requirement if the animal is to go to slaughter.

In order to facilitate owners/keepers affected by the new requirement to register all imported horses passport details, LHI is offering a recording facility for imported horses at a discounted rate of €20 for this service. The relevant form can be downloaded from the LHI website (CLICK HERE to download application form).

New ID rules for horses have come into force

New horse identification regulations came into force on January 1, 2016.

Commission Regulation EU 2015-262 has introduced a new passport format to be used throughout the EU which standardises the layout and improves the security features for passports in order to prevent fraud.

The markings must be performed by a VCI registered veterinarian and must meet the standard as laid out under FEI or Weatherbys guidelines.

On LHI passports, the animal UELN, Transponder Number and a typed transcript of the markings written description now appears in Section I Part A on page 3. A certified scan copy of the outline diagram now appears in Section I Part B on page 4. The animal name and breeding details now appears in Section V on page 22.

If you have a horse for breeding or production (ID only type horses), i.e. where breed type and pedigree is not to be recorded, they may now only be identified by an approved Passport Issuing Organisation (PIO) in the State in which the animal is kept.

Both the EU and national regulations confirm that the keeper is ultimately responsible for the identification of a horse. The keeper is also responsible for ensuring that the information contained in the identification document is accurate and up-to-date at all times. Under the new regulations, keepers are responsible for ensuring that horses have the relevant identification documents issued within 12 months from the date of birth of the animal. In this context keepers are required to submit a completed application for a horse passport to an appropriate PIO within 6 months from the date of the horse’s birth. A keeper who fails to comply with the requirement to properly identify a horse commits an offence and is liable on conviction to a fine of up to €5,000.

Keepers are advised to identify horses as soon as is practicable following the birth of the animal as the consequences for late identification include the automatic exclusion of the animal from the food chain. In such circumstances "replacement" passports will be issued which will be marked as such and will confirm the irrevocable exclusion of the animal from the food chain.

Additional responsibilities are placed on keepers with these new regulations to record the introduction of an equine into the State from another EU Member State. This requires the lodgement of the relevant passport with an approved PIO in the State within 30 days of the animal entering the country. Similarly, in the case of horses registered in Studbooks that are resident in the State but were identified by a PIO in another EU Member State, keepers are required to lodge the relevant passport with an appropriate PIO in the State within 30 days. This approach allows for the recording of the horse’s data on the database of the PIO and on the central equine database maintained by DAFM.

Importation Of Horses Into The State

DAFM confirmed that the rules on the importation of horses into the State from outside the EU remain unchanged. The importing keeper must, within 30 days of the completion of customs procedures, apply to an appropriate PIO in Ireland for the issue of an identification document in accordance with EU legislation or for the registration of the existing document in the PIO database and in the central database.

It is important to note that, while the EU regulation prescribes the identification information which keepers of horses need to provide when applying for horse passports, Member States are allowed to require additional information, as necessary. In this regard, the Department of Agriculture requires that a keeper making an application for a passport in Ireland must have a valid Equine Premises Registration Number assigned by the Department. The Equine Premises Registration Number must be recorded on the application form and current ownership details of horses kept in this country must be accurately recorded at all times.

Moreover, Regulations were introduced in 2014 requiring persons to notify change of ownership details of an horse to the relevant PIO within 30 days of the transaction. This is designed to ensure that horses can be readily traced, particularly in the event of an outbreak of disease.

In order to facilitate owners/keepers affected by the new requirement to register all imported horses passport details, LHI is offering a recording facility for imported horses at a discounted rate of €20 for this service. The relevant form can be downloaded from the LHI website (CLICK HERE to download application form).

Points to consider before registering your animal or sending off a new registration application to us:

Check to see if the animal already has a transponder (microchip) implanted:

  • You (and/or your vet) must thoroughly scan the animal for any previously implanted transponder.
  • Where a pre existing (15 digit number) transponder is found , you must first check that the animal was not registered previously.

Where to check:

Connemara Pony Breeders Society Tel. 095 21863 (3721004* chips)

Weatherbys Ireland Tel. 045 879979 (9851010* chips)

  • If the animal was registered previously in Ireland, the only course of action is to apply for a duplicate passport from the issuing authority that provided the original passport.
  • If the animal was issued with an identification type passport from an issuing authority outside of Ireland, we can assist you in obtaining a duplicate passport (slightly higher fees apply).
  • If the existing transponder is found to be unregistered and is of a compliant type, proceed to have the animal marked by your vet and they will handwrite this number on the chart.
  • If the transponder is not of a compliant type (eg 97227*, 900*, 972* etc) your vet must implant another compliant transponder and record both (all) numbers on the markings.

If no chip is found get your vet to implant a compliant transponder and complete the markings

Click here for more information on compliant transponders.

The markings are done - what now?

  • Complete the appropriate LHI application form (available here), complete all sections and sign the form.
  • The Equine Premises Number of where the animal is kept must be detailed on all registration applications.
  • If the markings are not on an LHI chart, you will still need to complete our application form.
  • Double check the vets markings:
    • Charts must have been completed / dated within the last 6 months.
    • Has the vet signed, stamped and dated the form.
    • Has the vet completed the diagram, written description, filled in identifying details and noted microchip location.
  • Send the correctly completed paperwork to us with the appropriate fee.

Please note, if we receive an application and it transpires that the horse is already registered with another Irish PIO, the registration fee will not be refunded.

Equine Registration Guidelines for Veterinary Surgeons

Please take note of the following guidelines which must be adhered to when completing marking charts for our customers.

VCI Registered

For registrations in the Republic of Ireland, vets must be registered with the Veterinary Council of Ireland.

Compliant Transponders

In order to obtain a passport for an equine, vets may now only implant a microchip obtained from one of the Irish Passport Issuing Authorities (PIO's). This requirement has been implemented by DAFM to ensure that the correct type of microchip is used in equines and that microchip number ranges are precisely controlled.

The Most Common Compliant Types:

Leisure Horse Ireland 3721403*

Horse Sport Ireland 3721414*

Connemara Pony Breeders Society 3721004*

Weatherbys Ireland GSB Ltd 9851010*

Pre-Existing Transponders

You must thoroughly scan the animal to check for a pre-existing transponder (microchip). Where a pre existing (15 digit number) transponder is found , the owner should first check that the animal was not registered previously.

If the animal was registered previously in Ireland, the only course of action is to apply for a duplicate passport from the issuing authority that provided the original passport.

If the animal was issued with an identification type passport from an issuing authority outside of Ireland, we can assist in obtaining a replacement passport where the UELN can be established (slightly higher fees apply).

Where to check:

LHI Registrations Online Checker: http://lhi.ie/#mcpcheck / 091 577577

Horse Passport Agency Online Checker: http://horsepassportagency.co.uk/

Dept of Agriculture / Horse ID Section Tel. 01 5058881

Horse Sport Ireland Tel. 045 850800

Connemara Pony Breeders Society Tel. 095 21863 (3721004* chips)

Weatherbys Ireland Tel. 045 879979 (9851010* chips)

If the existing transponder is found to be unregistered and is of a compliant type, just handwrite the number on the markings and the owner can proceed with the application.

If the existing transponder is found to be unregistered but is not of a compliant type (eg 97227*, 900*, 972* etc) the vet must implant another compliant transponder and record both (all) numbers on the markings.

Fitness for Human Consumption / Ageing of Foals

Under the EU Legislation effective January 2016, animals must be registered within 6 months of their birth. Where the animal has not had a passport issued within 12 months of birth they will be permanently excluded from the food chain and LHI are obliged to stamp their passport ‘Not Fit for Human Consumption’.

Accordingly we are completely reliant on the vet certification / markings to establish the age of an animal presented for registration.

Therefore great care must be taken in detailing the age of an animal (where eligibility for the food chain is a consideration) as an error can have very serious ramifications for all concerned down the line.

Please also note that under current DAFM guidelines, further verification of foal applications (spot checks) do take place and you may be requested for further verification regarding age.

Marking Chart Completion

Under the EU Legislation effective January 2016, markings must be completed according to FEI or Weatherbys guidelines (follow the links to download pdf copies), guidelines insist that both the written and silhouette sections must be completed (“as per diagram” is not acceptable). Black and Red pens can only be used and transponder location must be detailed on the diagram "M".

Complete all sections and in particular pay attention to these common omissions:

  • Signature applied
  • Official Vet Stamp applied
  • Markings Date
  • Place of Marking
  • Microchip Location
  • Species Confirmed
  • VCI Reference Number

Markings are only good for within 6 months of signing, where an owner contacts you to re-certify of an out of date marking chart, you must scan the horse to confirm the chip number and check the markings. You must then sign, stamp and date the chart again. If there are any discrepancies, new markings must be taken and the old chart attached to the new one.

If a customer has had markings taken on a non LHI chart, we can usually still accept this but they must complete one of our application forms before we can process the application.

Equine Transfer of Ownership:

Strict regulations which must be observed have now come into force regarding equine transfer of ownership in Ireland.

Furthermore upon enactment of SI 189 2014 (Equidae Transfer of Ownership Regulations 2014) and SI 201 2016, some animal and owner/keeper details will be submitted to the National Equine Database (DAFM / AIM Division) by Leisure Horse Ireland , relating to new transfers of ownership, first registration of equines and existing registrations amendments.

Explanatory Notes:

When selling / transferring ownership:

  • Give the passport to the buyer / new owner at the time of sale and
  • Insist the buyer completes the transfer of ownership form.
  • Take a photocopy or photograph of the completed form for your records.
  • Give the completed form to the buyer. (NB The onus is on the buyer to have the transfer of ownership officially registered by submitting the form, fee and passport to Leisure Horse Ireland)

When buying / acquiring ownership:

  • You must receive the passport from the seller at the time of purchase.
  • You must complete a transfer of ownership declaration form.
  • You must forward this form and the passport with the appropriate fee to Leisure Horse Ireland within 30 days of taking ownership.
  • Failure to register the transfer of ownership within the time limit is now a serious offence in Ireland and attracts heavy penalties if ignored.

Records:

  • Both parties must keep a copy of this transfer of ownership declaration - photocopying or photo will suffice.
  • DAFM authorised officers (Republic of Ireland only) will carry out inspections and have powers to inspect records and documents.

Registered Premises (Republic of Ireland only):

  • It is a legal requirement under the Control on Places where Horses are kept Regulations (SI 113 of 2014) that all premises where equine are kept be registered with the Department of Agriculture, so you should ensure that your equine is being kept on a registered premises by way of applying for an Equine Premises Number.
  • A new registration application cannot proceed without this number being detailed.

Relevant Legislation:

Do I need an Equine Premises number:

Yes. In order to register a horse or donkey in the Republic of Ireland, you must detail this number with every registration application.

The Department of Agriculture has prepared the information linked below to guide and assist you:

^^ back to the top


Compliant Transponders (Microchips):

In order to obtain a passport for your horse your vet must now only implant a microchip obtained from one of the Irish Passport Issuing Authorities (PIO's). Where an application is received detailing any other type of microchip and / or not issued by an Irish PIO, it will be returned and another compliant chip must be implanted in the animal by a Vet. Both chip numbers would then be recorded in the passport.

This requirement has been implemented by DAFM to ensure that the correct type of microchip is used in equines and that microchip number ranges are precisely controlled.

List of approved chip numbers (and only where issued by that PIO):

PIO Chip Lead Number

Please also be aware that any marking chart submitted can be no more than six months old and that all sections have been fully completed by a registered Vet.

^^ back to the top


Change of Ownership Guidance

First of all you need to complete a change of ownership declaration form (downloadable here).

Where possible include a copy of:

  • the bill of sale/invoice to you, or
  • veterinary examination certificate for the animal, or
  • a quick letter detailing how you came by the animal

and send the completed form, supporting paperwork and the passport to us.

The previous owners signature / details are not required and it is a common situation that previous owners may not have registered their ownership. The important thing is that you are declaring and registering your ownership now.

Your ownership will be registered on the LHI database and on the Irish Dept of Agriculture Equine database. Some owners then also like to register chip numbers on 3rd party pet identification websites, but this is a matter for individual horse owners and it is not a service LHI offers.

For your convenience and security, you can pre-pay online by Visa, Mastercard or PayPal.

Recorded / Courier return delivery is compulsory for destinations outside of Ireland. The total cost for UK mainland residents is Eur 31.00. For all other destinations, please email us for current rates.

We turn around change of ownerships very quickly, usually same day and we do recommend using our courier service for return of the passport as the risk of loss of an item passes to you when placed back in standard post. Recorded delivery is usually next business day Ireland, UK Mainland two working days / signed for delivery.

 

P.S. It's also a good idea to send it registered post to us too!

What is a Piebald or Skewbald Horse

Horses come in all shapes, sizes and types, with one major distinction - Colour.

Here in Ireland we use the terms "Piebald" or "Skewbald" to describe certain horse colouration. In other countries you will see references to "Coloured" or "Paint" horses which in many cases these descriptions really have the same meaning.

Piebald / Skewbald - Colour Definition
A Skewbald and Piebald is defined by its external visible coat colouration and markings and not by its genetic makeup or type. They are therefore distinctive and unique from other “coloured”, splash marked, or extended leg marked breeds or types.

Piebald:
Large irregular patches of black and white (usually black on a white base).

Skewbald:
Any other colour or colours and white i.e. bay, brown, chestnut, grey, dun or palomino and white. There may be some black marks in addition.

Note:

  • If a horse or pony has white markings on the head, legs, belly and / or mane or tail in isolation, it cannot be considered as a Piebald or Skewbald.
  • Clyde markings do not constitute a Skewbald or Piebald in isolation from other colour.
  • Pinto\Paint is an American term which generally means either Piebald or Skewbald; however there is also a technical difference in that they have different meanings. The Pinto Horse Association is a colour registry, and Pintos can be any breed. Paints are APHA-registered horses that can prove parentage from one of the three approved registries AQHA, TB and APHA, as well as meet a minimum colour requirement. While a loud-coloured horse could be double-registered if it met the breed standards specified by each registry, the two registries are independent.

Why do I need a passport?

From 1st July 2009, the identification system for equidae was amended. Under EU Legislation, all equidae will have to be microchipped and have their identification document (passport) within six months of their birth. The microchip number of each animal must be recorded on its passport.

The new identification system will build on a single identification document – one passport – issued for life when the animal is born or imported. The document will be linked to the animal by their microchip, and the fact that it was issued will be recorded in a database under a Unique Equine Life Number (UELN) for the animal that will remain the constant reference even when the animal’s name is changed.

Under the EU Legislation, animals not registered within 6 months of their birth, or outside the year of birth (whichever is longer) will be permanently excluded from the food chain and The IPSA is obliged to stamp their passport ‘Not Fit for Human Consumption’. Similarly, where foals are sent to slaughter, they must have been registered for a period of at least 6 months before they are allowed to enter the food chain. Where an animal is issued a duplicate passport they will be permanently excluded from the food chain and the duplicate passport stamped to reflect this.
Passports issued by L.H.I at all times remain the property of L.H.I. Upon death or slaughter of any animal, the passport must be returned to Leisure Horse Ireland.

^^ back to the top


What are L.H.I. passports suitable for?

L.H.I. passports are fully EU approved and therefore suitable for all requirements – i.e. SJAI registration, marts and international transport etc.

^^ back to the top


What is the difference between a foal and an adult horse registration?

For L.H.I. registration purposes:

  • A horse is deemed to be a foal in its year of birth (e.g. any animal born between 1st January 2016 and 31st December 2016 is considered a foal for the duration of that calendar year)
  • A horse is deemed to be an adult outside its year of birth (e.g. an animal born between 1st January 2016 and 31st December 2016 is deemed to be an adult horse from 1st January 2014 onwards)

For adult horse registration fees (coloured studbook passports) the following applies:

  • Adult (Yearling & Older) – animal born in 2011 is a adult from 1st January 2012 onwards
