Bramble Hub and Equine Register win Central Equine Database (CED) contract

Friday 13th May 2016

Notes of the ‘UK Equine Disease Coalition’ meeting = http://www.worldhorsewelfare.org/disease-coalition

5. Equine Identification Regulation. RO outlined latest situation with regards to:

• Central Equine Database (CED) – awarded to Bramble Hub – who are proposing to sub-contract the development work to Equine Register (which is good news for the sector) and the hosting and service management to Topline Computing. Technically Defra are likely to meet their requirement to have a CED established by 1 Jul but the database is unlikely to be operational from a practical perspective until the start of next year. The CED will have an on-line facility for owners to notify change of food chain status, death of an animal etc.

• Drafting the Statutory Instrument (SI) to bring in the enforcement arrangements for the new European Regulation (2015/262). There has been no enforceable equine ID regulation since 1 Jan and there is unlikely to be any until late 2017. Defra are due to consult on the new implementing regulation later this year – which will include the sector’s proposal to retrospectively microchip all UK equines. The proposal for fixed penalty notices (FPNs) – which the sector feels is another critical aspect for an effective equine ID system – is still being considered by Defra, although it is technically allowable under current English legislation However in Scotland establishing FPNs will require primary legislation. KM highlighted that consideration would need to be given to exempted semi-feral populations from the requirement for treatment with a medicinal product to be recorded in the passport where the product has a zero withdrawal period as some of these animals had no passport (e.g. for oestrus suppression).

12. Date of next meeting – Mon 7 Nov – 1pm.

Bramble Hub and Equine Register win DEFRA contract for new Central Equine Database

Partner: Equine Register

Background

DEFRA, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs is responsible for environmental protection, food production and standards, agriculture, fisheries and rural communities in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

The Requirement

DEFRA is required by EU law to hold “basic identification and food chain status" on all horses in the country. The UK had a National Equine Database but this was discontinued in 2012 so a new Central Equine Database (CED) was required. DEFRA issued a tender under the Crown Commercial Service's Corporate Software Solutions Framework for the development, building, hosting, management and maintenance of the CED.

Our Success

The contract was awarded by Defra to Bramble Hub and its partner Equine Register, to set up the CED and populate it with horse 'passports' currently held by 67 passport-issuing organisations. The database is to be fully operational by 31 December.

The Horse Passport Agency has just loaded 253,690 records onto Defra's Central Equine Database (CED). We will now be updating CED nightly and understand that the public will be able to check microchips against CED very soon!
