The International Equestrian Federation (FEI) is developing a system that enables real-time traceability of horses. Based on a combination of a microchip, microchip reader and smartphone app, this system will send information on registered users, horses, times and locations to the FEI database. Animal health information will also be recorded and, as a first step, a procedure for registering vaccinations against equine influenza vaccination will be developed. The system is also intended to register the movements of high health, high performance horses. The launch of this system is planned for 2020.
