    Participating With other Sectors and Government in Recommending Traceability Strategies/Policies Providing Leadership In Cost/Sharing Parameters Participating Actively in CCIA Development Project Funding Requested Developing Technology Based Traceability Processes Developing Paper Based Traceability Processes Resources to assist producers get started Testing Different RFID Tags

    10. What are the Timeframes

    Animal Identification - Complete Premises Identification In Progress and to Be complete By Dec. 2010 Movement Recording Developing and to be Completed by December 2011

    Provinces Putting Systems in Place that will Accommodate Registration and Validation of Premises Systems Include Provincial Registries that are Regulated, Voluntary or Existing Provinces Working with Industry to Facilitate Registration Some Provinces Using Systems of CCIA Some Provinces Integrating Systems with CCIA

    12. CCIA Is Changing

    Will Continue With Cattle And Bison Canadian Traceability Centre Being Developed to Provide Traceability Services for Other Sectors Canadian Traceability Centre will provide Traceability Data Management Services to Others requiring Such Services Federal Government Supporting Development Industry/Governments Cost Sharing Parameters Being Developed

    13. What are the Timeframes

    Animal Identification - Complete Premises Identification In Progress and to Be complete By Dec. 2010 Movement Recording Developing and to be Completed by December 2011
