    Descriptive info: Premises Identification.. What is premises identification?.. Premises identification is the assignment of a randomly generated, unique identification number to a physical land location referred to as a premises location allocator identification number or premises identification number (PLA ID or PID).. The Canadian Cattle Identification Agency (CCIA) strongly encourages every producer to obtain a PLA ID or PID number by reporting the legal land description (LLD) of their primary premises (home quarter or operation) and record it in the Canadian Livestock Tracking System (CLTS).. How does premises identification fit with traceability?.. A fully functional livestock traceability system is based upon three pillars:.. Animal Identification.. – To associate a unique animal identification number to a location and time.. – To provide a unique identification of a physical location.. Movement.. – To associate the identification number with a premises and time.. Premises identification is one of the three key pillars of a full traceability system.. In order to track the third pillar, movement (move-in or move-out) or sighted events of  ...   should register their premises?.. Premises identification affects a wide range of industry groups.. Producers who have livestock residing on their land should register their land locations.. The land being identified can include:.. • Home quarters.. • Pastures.. • Veterinary clinics.. • Auction marts.. • Livestock feedlots.. • Abattoirs.. Benefits of premises identification:.. • Assists in tracing animals to effectively manage an animal disease outbreak.. • Assists in responding to natural disaster emergencies (tornadoes, floods, fires, etc).. • Aids in disease control measures for animal health issues when more than one livestock species is affected.. • Aids to rapidly inform producers in affected areas of disease threats or control measures.. • Helps to rapidly coordinate sites for carcass disposal in the event of an animal disease outbreak.. • Assists with dispatching emergency resources to appropriate targeted locations to contain and assist with disease outbreaks.. • Helps to resume commerce and limit losses after animal disease outbreak..
