In accordance with Articles 4 (5), 12 (4), 23 (3) and (4) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 504/2008, each Member State shall make certain information available to the other Member States and the public on a website. In addition, this national website may also contain information in relation to Articles 5 (6), 7 (2) and 14 (2) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 504/2008.
In order to assist the Member States in making such information available, the Commission provides this website with the links to the relevant national websites.
The information concerns in particular: issuing bodies for equine passports, alternative methods for identity verification, central databases, contact points, time limits for the identification of equidae, derogations for equidae under wild or semi-wild conditions and smart cards.
