Rule 192 – IDs for Greyhounds

Greyhounds shall be uniquely referenced in BGRDb communications by the use of alphanumeric identity codes, referred to as IDs. An unregistered Greyhound shall be referenced by an ID formed from an ID allocated to it by the appropriate Stud Book. Upon GBGB registration the Greyhound’s ID shall become that allocated by the Registry System, which shall promulgate the details and draw attention to the change in a file distributed to Racecourses and to the Form Database at least weekly. The file shall contain ID data for all Greyhounds registered during the current and the nine preceding calendar years.

The Registry system shall record the microchip identification number of each greyhound in a field that shall permit identification of the greyhound details via the microchip number, and vice versa.
