P-42, r. 7 - Regulation respecting the identification and traceability of certain animals

Full text
8. An owner, custodian or importer of animals must identify the animals or have them identified and ensure that they remain identified.
Despite the foregoing, the following animals born in Québec are not required to be identified until they are removed from the operation of origin or pasture:
(1)  a bovine aged 7 days or less or, if it is born in pasture and kept with its mother, 5 months or less;
(2)  a cervid less than one year of age, until 31 December following birth; and
(3)  an ovine aged 30 days or less.
A cervid that is in a place where fewer than 6 cervids are kept on 31 December of the current year is also exempt from identification.
If the operation comprises more than one production site, an animal that is removed from a production site is considered to be removed from the operation unless the animal is a bovine or an ovine and the site is less than 10 km from the location where most of the operation’s activities are carried on.
The owner or custodian of a cervid, other than a cervid referred to in the third paragraph, born before 26 February 2009 and kept in Québec must identify the animal or have it identified in accordance with section 9 or 10 of that Regulation not later than 31 December 2010 or before the cervid is removed from the operation, whichever is earlier.
