TRACES Video

TRACES (TRAde Control and Expert System) is the online management tool of the European Commission, that tracks the movements of animals, food, feed and plants imported from outside the European Union, or travelling through the EU Member States. More than 26,000 users from more than 70 countries worldwide connect to TRACES in 33 languages, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Should there be a problem with an animal or product, TRACES quickly tracks back to the original source of the problem and forward to the destination. This represents a major leap forward in monitoring animal diseases and combatting fraud, whilst significantly speeding up administrative procedures. TRACES: protecting consumers, facilitating trade.

Available Languages: English, French, German, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish

Animal Traceability Video

The registration of farms, the allocation of a unique identification for every bovine species accompanied by an individual passport and the registration of any movement in the national databases, guarantees a full traceability of cattle movements. Three major tools are put in place to support this traceability in the EU: TRACES (TRAde Control and Expert System ) which records all the movements between Member States, BOVEX (Bovine Exchange) which tackles the administrative burden through the digitalisation of passports and ADNS (Animal Disease Notification System ) which alerts all Member States in case of the outbreak of disease.

Available Languages: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, EN subtitled, IT subtitled.
