Microchipping of horses

Defra’s new equine identification regulations which came into force on Monday 1 October 2018, legally require every horse, pony and donkey to be microchipped and possess a valid UK passport, with details stored in the Central Equine Database (CED).

All horses born after 30 June 2009 are already required to be microchipped. Owners of horses born before this date will have TWO YEARS from 1 October 2018 to get their equines microchipped.

Any changes in a horse’s ownership or status — for example, if they are put down, lost, stolen or signed out of the food chain — will need to be notified to the passport issuing organisation. The organisation will then have 24 hours to update the CED.
