Manufacturer’s ISO Codes
ISO transponders contain 15 numbers. The first three digits identify the manufacturer. These codes are issued by
ICAR (International Committee for Animal Recording) and a complete list with descriptions and pictures can be
found on the following website - http://www.service-icar.com/manufacturer_complete.php
The following list was adapted from this website and represents all the manufacturers that provide implantable
ISO transponders (FDX-B) as of March 19, 2003.
(*List not added*)
Microchip Country Codes
If an ISO Transponder’s code starts with a number other than 9, the manufacturer has placed the ISO assigned
Country Code as the first three digits.
Following is a list of some of the countries that have been assigned a code by the International Standards
203 Czech Republic
214 Dominican Republic
554 New Zealand
630 Puerto Rico
643 Russian Federation
710 South Africa
826 United Kingdom
840 United States
900 – 999 Private Use
Chips starting with 985 - 985 is a manufacturers code, not a country code. It is not the same standard chip.

NEW MICROCHIP CHECK (26/09/2012) :- On Friday 27th the National Equine Database will close, removing the facility for Passport Issuing Organisations (PIOs) and the public to search the database for information collected from all 75 PIOs.
In light of this the Horse Passport Agency has now made a microchip search publicly available to allow users to check numbers against the Horse Passport Agency and Pleasure Horse Society databases. If a microchip is not found it may still be registered on one of the other 74 PIO databases.
We hope that DEFRA and the PIOs can work together to allow all this microchip data to be held on one free, publicly accessible, database in the future.
How this works
Type the microchip number in the box and click the binocular symbol
If you do not get a match, you get this message - (your microchip number) has not been found
If you do get a match, you get this message - A match was found on our Horse Passport Agency database for microchip (x)
What do I do next ?
If you get a match, contact the Horse Passport Agency with the chip number you were checking and ask for their help with whatever information you were looking for
The following PIOs have made their microchip data available to be searched on this database:
(list correct as of 28 june 2016)
Anglo European Studbook
Caspian Horse Society
Coloured Horse and Pony Society UK
Horse Passport Agency (IRE)
Horse Passport Agency Ltd
