Letter | brand mark certificates | REGISTRATION OF BRANDMARKS INTERIM ARRANGEMENTS


2 February 2021

Dear Livestock Owner,

REGISTRATION OF BRANDMARKS INTERIM ARRANGEMENTS

We have been informed that the current Animal Identification System administered by the Registrar
of Brandmarks in the Department of Agriculture and Land Reform and Rural Development (DALRRD)
is malfunctioning.

The Registrar can at present only register and issue NEW BRANDMARK as has always been the case.
Therefore continue to apply as directed on the website.

The Registrar can however not re-issue registration certificates or transfer brandmarks for one
person to the other. IF YOU NEED YOUR BRANDMARK CERTIFICATE TO BE RE-ISSUED you are advised
to visit our nearest Stock Theft and Endangered Species Unit with a valid Identification Document
and request their assistance in this regard. If you do need any assistance finding your closest STU
please contact your Provincial Red meat Producers Organisation (RPO), their information is available
at www.rpo.co,za

THIS IS AN INTERIM MEASURE UNTIL THE COMPUTER SYSTEM AT DALLRD IS FUNCTIONING AGAIN.

Kind Regards
WILLIE CLACK
