The British Cattle Movement Service (BCMS) is making changes to its process for reissuing cattle passports, effective from 1 October 2018.

Cattle keepers are responsible for ensuring that they receive the passports they apply for and informing BCMS if they don’t. From the 1 October, BCMS is introducing a time limit of six weeks from the date of issue for keepers to report non-receipt, after which they will charge for a replacement.
