Agriculture & Markets (AGM) CHAPTER 69, ARTICLE 7
§ 111-a. Microchipping standards. 1. The commissioner may adopt and
promulgate rules and regulations that may provide for: standardization
of technology used in microchips implanted in companion animals that are
dogs or cats; and/or microchip readers so that such readers used by
veterinarians, animal shelters, dog control officers, and animal control
officers are capable of reading any chip to identify the animals and/or
the owner of record; and/or the need for such veterinarians, animal
shelters, dog control officers, and animal control officers to possess
or have access to a microchip reader capable of reading any commercially
available microchip implanted in a cat or dog. Such rules and
regulations may also provide for the collection, sharing, and
dissemination of chip identification information by entities that
possess and manage such information solely to promote timely
notification of owners when pets are lost while maintaining privacy
protection of personal information and providing for disclosure to such
owners of the sharing of such information.
