Transmission of Traceability Data

In order to ensure the quality of information transmitted into the Attestra traceability system, data transmission rules have been put in place. These rules have an impact on certain disclosure requirements when collecting and transferring data.

These rules do not in any way alter the obligations of owners or keepers of animals as set out in the Regulation respecting the identification and traceability of certain animals.

Any information required under the Regulation respecting the identification and traceability of certain animals, transmitted electronically or by using SimpliTRACE, must comply with the data format required by the system.

If the data you transmit is incomplete or incorrect, this information will not be saved and a system error message will indicate the nature of the corrections you need to make.
