I don't think it is compulsary unless you plan on selling the tortoise or you want to breed from it. The tortoise also has to be over 100mm before it can be done to.

Absolute rubbish, currently you only have to microchip if you intend on selling or breeding and only then if they are over 10cm

They are thinking of introducing a 'nanochip' though which is much smaller for tiny torts but that's not law...yet

Absolute rubbish !!!!!!! , the only time they need to be micro-chipped is if you intend to sell them or breed from them . A10's are only issued to use a tortoise for comercial purpose's .
