The European Commission has just introduced TRACES, a new IT system designed to improve the management of animal movements both from outside the EU and within the EU. TRACES will consolidate and simplify existing systems and create better tools for managing animal disease outbreaks. All those concerned by animal trade authorities and economic operators will benefit from this modern web-based system, the first EU-wide e-government application in the field of food safety.
