The ADGA Board of Directors recently approved a transitional policy to allow electronic ID (microchips) when the tattoo cannot be read but was applied.
Here is a short guide to the new policy, including type, location and use examples. This policy is for all ADGA programs (LA, DHIR/VT, Buck collections, Shows, etc,).
The Board has also directed that this be looked at for use as the sole form of ID.
