With rapid advances in electronic, radio and computer technologies, global electronic identification for livestock and companion animals is now technically feasible. It is particularly important for animal safety, farm management, disease control and prevention of fraud or theft. While international standards have been established, new devices are continuing to emerge with advanced functionalities and features. This paper proposes the use of Radio Frequency Identification Tags (RFID) with Read - Write capabilities for the development of Electronic Livestock Passports (ELP). In corporation with the remote information management system (RIMS) and the Remote Video Monitoring system (RVMS), the ELP will bring many benefits. Other related issues are also discussed in this paper.
