The Identity Systems Center offers consumers and distributors an automated information system for the identification, registration, traceability of animals and products of animal origin (AITS) under an outsourcing or distribution agreement.
Center for Identification Systems has developed the National Automated Information System for the identification, registration, traceability of animals and products of animal origin (AITS, www.aits.by), which is used to register owners of animals of all forms of ownership, livestock facilities, and animals themselves.

AITS is a system designated for state regulation and management in the field of identification, registration, traceability of farm animals (bovines, horses, pigs, goats, sheep) of all forms of ownership, livestock facilities, as well as for identification and traceability of products of animal origin.

AITS.by provides real-time information on the health status and veterinary welfare of each farm animal throughout its life, as well as on all deliveries of produced meat and dairy products from identified animals. The system receives information on a daily basis about who, what and with what quality indicators the products were produced, what raw materials, from which livestock facilities (up to the identifiers of specific animals) were used for its production, as well as a register of all shipments of each daily, manufactured batch of products for each a specific name with the provision, if necessary, of digital (electronic) passports of goods. Any of the participants in the supply chain can receive a unified electronic veterinary certificate (EVS) containing data on shipment, data on each specific name of the goods in the shipped batch, including indicators of quality and veterinary safety.

AITS is a centralized system built with the use of barcoding and RFID-technologies on the basis of a powerful information node with appropriate means of communication. The system meets the requirements of the Belarusian and international regulations for animal identification systems.

AITS ensures animal traceability in Belarus basing on national and international standards for animal identification and registration and making an extensive use of the GS1 global standards.

The core of the AITS system uses modern international zootechnical and veterinary reference sources, global standards for
identification, traceability and electronic data interchange, and has a flexible customization system.

This allows it not only to be quickly tailored for the identification of different animal species, but also to take into account changes and differences in legislation, ensuring the system can be quickly set up and implemented in other countries.

AITS creates and keeps up-to-date databases and functional components for the identification and traceability of products of animal origin in supply chains, allowing to trace them from farm to fork and from fork to farm in a "one step forward, one step back" manner.

This creates conditions for the development of effective traceability information technologies at the national, inter-agency and corporate level.
