AIN tags are designed for one-time use, and each tag is imprinted with an AIN, which is a 15-digit, nationally
unique number for animals covered by NAIS. Other distinguishing features include the U.S. shield and the term “Unlawful to Remove.” AIN tags may incorporate other supplemental identification
technology, such as radio frequency identification (RFID). All six of the APHIS-approved AIN tags contain an ISO-compliant
RFID transponder. ID tag must carry USDA animal identification numbers (AIN) starting with the 840 country code. The ID tag
must be a Radio Frequency ID (RFID) tag that meets the ISO 11784 and ISO 11785 standards.
There are now a total of six approved AIN tags.

Premises Registration will be an "Official" USDA unique seven Character identifier.
In the New User Guide it states on Page 22:
The premises identification number (PIN) is assigned permanently to a geophysical location.
If an owner or entity sells his/her farm, the next operators of the premises use the original premises identification number
that had been assigned to that location. If the seller buys a new location to build a new operation that never had livestock,
he/she would register that location and obtain a new premises identification number (PIN).
Premises Identification = Encumbrance
