The project consisted of three components:
1. Completion of the bovine I&R system in line with relevant EU and FYR Macedonian legislation including all components at field level and in the central database. (The target was to achieve that more than 90% of the cattle population are tagged, identified, registered and their movements recorded.)
2. Preparation of a detailed concept, system design and implementation plan for extending the present I&R system to ovine and caprine animals in line with EU legal requirements; harmonization of the relevant legislation; design of a small ruminant holding census; establishment of a sheep and goat holding register.
3. Preparation of a concept, system design and implementation plan for developing an integrated animal I&R and veterinary surveillance network, including agreed solution, technical design, workflow and information flow, data model and tender documents for procurement of all system components; elaboration of a veterinary information system for all ruminants at the individual holding, herd/flock and animal level; the design should have taken into account the future development of other VD and Ministry systems such as a complete animal holding register (pigs and others), concept of farm register (integrated for all farms or separate animal farm register), integrated administration and control system (IACS) and GIS.
