Legal Requirement For Dogs To Be Microchipped In England From 6th April 2016

From the 6th of April 2016, all dogs must be microchipped and registered to an approved database by the time they are 8 weeks old.

For every dog that is currently not microchipped, you will have until 6th of April to get them microchipped and registered on an approved database.

If a keeper of a dog which is not microchipped gets served with a notice requiring them to have the dog chipped, they will have 21 days to do this.
