The Brazilian Minister of Agriculture, Wagner Rossi, has signed a new regulation that defines the criteria of the Animal Transport Guide (ATG) in an electronic format. The new e-ATG has been adopted for live animals, ovules, and other reproduction materials throughout the country.

The e-ATG will be expedited with software used by the Minister of Agriculture and the information will be sent to a single database which can be consulted and documents’ authenticity can be verified.

The electronic document will contain information on the species, origin, destination, quantity per age and sex, and transport information like identification of the issuer, date and place of issue, and expiration.

This procedure has been common throughout several different states in Brazil, but until now a central system for national data did not exist. The paper ATG model will still be used when adapting to the electronic format is not possible. In such cases, the transport information should be included in the state database and then sent to the national database.

The ATG is an important protective instrument that aids the official Veterinary Service in preventing the introduction and spread of diseases.
