Apply online with the British Pig Executive (BPEX) for an electronic licence for pig movements (eAML2).

Start now on the eaML2 website

The eAML2 combines the original paper form AML2 and the Food Chain Information forms.

Copies of the AML2 are automatically uploaded to Trading Standards, so you no longer need to post them.

You will need:

  • your membership number, if you’re in an assurance scheme
  • the herdmark, holding number and site postcode, if you’re not in an assurance scheme

If you’re in Scotland you should register with the ScotEID national pig movement database instead.

Cross compliance

These standards are part of cross compliance. You must meet them to get your farming subsidy under the Single Payment Scheme.

You can report pig movements by phone and get advice by email.
