GB Poultry Register relocated
Thursday, 21 August 2014 00:00
The Great Britain Poultry Register (GBPR) was decommissioned in March 2013 and details held on the separate GBPR IT system were moved across to AHVLA’s Sam IT system, which is the main system used by AHVLA to store information about farmers and animal keepers.
Telephone calls previously made to the Poultry Register Helpline are now handled by AHVLA’s Specialist Service Centre in Cardiff. GBPR did not require poultry keepers to have a permanent CPH, as they issued them with a temporary CPH and reference number.
However, the registration process in Sam requires keepers to have a CPH in order to generate a record. If the keeper does not have a permanent CPH from the RPA, and only intends to keep poultry, then AHVLA will issue a 9000-series CPH number, solely for that purpose.
Only in the event that the individual also keeps cattle, sheep etc. as well as poultry, would they need to obtain a permanent CPH from the RPA.
