As a result of the publication of the Agreement establishing the Computerized Traceability System for Agricultural, Aquaculture and Fishing Commodities (SITMA), work was completed on developing the computerized system for the beef cattle chain, The information contained in SENASICA‘s internal computer systems (SINAMOPE, AMTIF, SIPVI, AMDH, VUCEM, SINACERTWEB) was integrated to provide information on the movement of bovine animals, products and byproducts for domestic movement, import and export.
The RUE (Registro Único de Establecimientos) was also developed, which will allow all livestock, plant, aquaculture and fishery production units to have a standardized key to carry out any procedure before SENASICA, achieving geo-referencing of all production units regulated by SENASICA.
