Radio frequency identification of animals -- Standardization of injection sites for different animal species

This document specifies injectable transponders to all animals included in the Equidae family. It describes two (2) injection sites already in use for official identification in different countries. It pictures the anatomically defined injection point as well as the angle and the deepness of the cannula to be inserted into the body.

Foreword

ISO (the International Organisation for Standardisation) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organisations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardisation.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular, the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www.iso.org/directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of

any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or

on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www.iso.org/patents).

Introduction
This document can be used as a basis for legal decisions.

Since 1989 animals around the world started to be identified with implants. At that stage there was no

standardised technology and also no standardised method of using these implants.

Since 1996 the ISO standards ISO 11784 and ISO 11785 are in force and many countries around the

world are relying on these technical standards. The ISO 11784 and ISO 11785 technologies are used to

identify animals with ear tag transponders, bolus transponders, leg tag transponders and injectable

transponders. For the identification of Equidae only injectable transponders are relevant. There is no

clear guideline where to inject the glass tube transponder. This needs to be standardised for all animal

species which are identified with these transponders.

The standardised methods of identifying species allow a quick, reliable and effective reading of animal

identification codes and a reliable recovery of the transponder when slaughtering the animals.

This document is relevant for veterinarians, animal owners, and authorities responsible for checking

the identification of animals, such as customs offices, veterinary clinics, shelters and slaughterhouses.

The standardisation of the injection sites of animal species is related to different species and several

fields of interest.

After decennia of market experience, migration of the transponder is still a problem in most animal

species being identified by injectable transponders. Migration is related to several points. The major

points are the injection site and the application of the injectable transponder, but the correct injection

site can be related to the dimensions (length and diameter) of the injectable transponder. In dogs and

cats, this is not a big issue, as the transponders that are commonly used are the smallest readily available.

There are several publications that precisely describe the application of injectable transponders in an

anatomical way, but there is a demand from the community to have a comprehensive overview of all

aspects related to the application and use of injectable transponders for different animal species.
