Equine Information Document (EID)

E-mail Print

As of July 31, 2010, an Equine Information Document (EID) is required for all horses presented at a processing facility in Canada


The document requires an owner-signed declaration to verify the accuracy of the information and must include details, dating back six months, on the animal's health and any administered medications. A number of medications are no longer permitted in horses being processed for human consumption.

For complete details on the EID visit the Canadian Food Inspection (CFIA) Equine Information Document web page or call CFIA at 1-800-442-2342.
