This article will explain how you can find out who your Passport Issuing Organisation (PIO) is if you only have your equine's UELN. It will also link you to the PIO's contact details. 

All UELNs starting with 826 are UK PIOs. If your UELN starts with 372, it's an Irish PIO and you may have to register it with a UK PIO unless the first 6 digits are 372 414. In this case, the PIO is the Northern Ireland Horse Board Co-Op Society Ltd, a UK registered PIO.   

Passport Issuing Organisations marked in italics are no longer active and will be unable to process your request. You will be assigned new PIOs who manage the passports of closed PIOs.
