Wednesday 5 October 2011 (6 years 9 months 17 days ago)

Up until 1st october, the electronic recording of pig movements has been written into legislation. There will be a transitional period of six months for the phasing out of the paper-based forms and adjustment to online eAML2 forms.

Following a recent consultation, Defra intends to amend the existing Pigs, Records, Identification and Movements Order (PRIMO) 2007 to reflect the requirement of pre-notification of movements.

Between October and next April the existing paper AML2 forms and the eAML2 online forms will both be in operation. This will give producers the opportunity to adjust to the change in process.

All pig movements can now be recorded using eAML2 except for movements to and from shows, which will be introduced from 1 January 2012.

Benefits include the fact that the industry will have a realistic herd register providing accurate and timely information. This will enable better communication and control in the event of disease outbreak. There will be no need to fill in the same information again and again as the eAML2 service will pre-populate the basic information automatically. Also, when pigs are sent to slaughter, the system combines the movement licence and FCI form in one, which will save producers time.
