In the framework of the CAROdog project, an EU Traceability Expert workshop has been established by VIER PFOTEN in partnership with the Federation of Veterinarians of Europe, the Istituto G Caporale Teramo, the EU Commission, TASSO, DATAMARS, EUROPETNET, Planet ID and the Belgian Health Ministry. With the development of CAROcat, this group became the EU Canine and Feline Traceability Expert Working Group.
In the frame of the working group, the urgent need of mandatory Identification and Registration has been regularly assessed, as well as the benefits to expect from such a system.
