The aim of the project is to progress the implementation of NAITS that will primarily enhance NFA’s disease control and food safety measures, as well as meet Georgia’s commitment to the Association Agreement with the European Union (EU) to implement the Acquis Communautaire. The immediate impact of this project will be an enhanced competitiveness of Georgian agriculture achieved through improvement of the food safety and animal health standards. The outcome of this project will be the establishment of an integrated European Union compliant National Animal Identification, Registration and Traceability Systems in Georgia for cattle, small ruminants and pigs. The SW that will be developed will allow the identification and registration of the all the animal movements (birth, transport, death, seasonal transhumance, change of ownership etc) enhancing the capacity for the national veterinary service to monitor the movement control of farm animals and limiting their displacement in case of disease outbreaks. The same system will contribute to improve the country food safety level by allowing full traceability of each animal product.
The results issued are:
At the end of the project the National Food Agency will have the possibility of monitoring the movements of all the animals registered by the veterinary services and by the private veterinarians. A clear update situation of the farm animal present in the countries per species, province, village and for each farm will be available. In case of outbreak of diseases the NFA will be able to limit the movement of the animals. Moreover the vaccination programs and laboratory analysis will be linked to the NAITS ensuring additional enhanced information management of the animal health status in the country.
