Rásaíocht Con Éireann (RCÉ) has been undertaking a range of inspections under the Welfare of Greyhounds Act to also incorporate a cross-check with data recorded in its traceability system – RCETS - relating to racing greyhounds.

The RCETS system can be accessed through the RCETS app (available for both iPhones and android phones) or from www.rcets.ie. If you need to check that your details are correct or need further help with RCÉTS, please contact our Traceability Helpdesk.
