Animals imported from other Member States will, from 1 September 1998, already be double tagged. There is no need to retag these animals unless an eartag is lost.
Your eartag manufacturer can supply replacements for these tags. These replacements will bear the same unique animal ID number, but will replace the original country of origin's logo with the UK crown logo.
Animals imported from third countries must be retagged in each ear with Defra approved eartags within 15 days of import.
