Service Description

If you want to operate an insemination station, embryo collection or production unit for cattle, pigs, sheep, goats or equidae, you need a permit under the Animal Breeding Act.

The permit is granted if

  • a veterinary surgeon is in charge of the facility from a veterinary technical point of view or the performance of veterinary technical tasks by a veterinary surgeon who is contractually bound to the insemination station is guaranteed,
  • the staff required for proper operation are available
  • the facilities necessary for the collection, handling, storage and delivery of semen are available, and
  • in the case of an insemination centre, the male breeding animals are present.

The permit relates to the respective facility with its operational parts as well as to the respective animal species. As a rule, it is granted for a period of 10 years. It may be reissued.


Process flow

The operator's licence must be obtained from the zootechnical authority locally competent for the location of the establishment.

The procedure is as follows:

  • An informal application with the required documents for an operating permit must be submitted in writing.
  • After an on-site inspection to check that the requirements for approval have been met, a decision is made on the granting of the permit.
  • If necessary, the permit is granted subject to conditions.
