It is a legal requirement upon owners to ensure that the information held about them and their equine/s are up to date on the CED. The CED records equine identification and food chain status information, this is used for the protection of both equines and humans. Owner information is also recorded on the CED.

If you own an equine, you can check the information held about you and your equine on the CED through the Digital Stable. Use this link to register; The Digital Stable | Equine Register Ltd

You should check to ensure the following is correct;

  • You are recorded in the passport as the owner

  • Your name and address details

  • The name and details of your equine

  • The microchip number (It is a legal requirement that all equines in the UK are microchipped and that the details are recorded on the CED)

  • Food Chain Status (Whether by your choice or because of medication administered to your equine it is important that the CED record states if the equine should or should not be allowed to be in the food chain for human consumption after slaughter).

If at anytime any of the above details change, you should immediately update the details in your Digital Stable which will inform your PIO of your request for changes. You can also contact your PIO direct.
