The functionality of the TANLITS includes as a fundamental element the registration of all relevant stakeholders who are covered by the system (for ex. animal holdings, villages, livestock markets, slaughterhouses). In addition, the management of animal identification events (registration, movements), ID device management, animal health events, on spot controls for the three species cattle, sheep and goat are performed by the system. The system allows the management of several animal identification schemes by using different devices (brands, ear-tags, electronic ear-tags, boluses) or by carrying out the identification individually or with a group (village) number.

The TANLITS includes a GIS that visualizes all animal events and location of stakeholders including the possibility to define zones or to ban the movement of animals in case of a disease outbreak.
