Registration of Biodiversity Credits - New South Wales


You need to apply for this registration if you have generated biodiversity credits under the Biobanking Scheme, and again, separately, if you have sold or transferred those credits.

The Biobanking Scheme enables biodiversity credits to be generated by landowners who commit to enhancing and protecting biodiversity values on their land through a Biodiversity Stewardship Agreement. These credits can then be sold to either:

  • companies seeking to counterbalance (or offset) the impacts of their development activities on biodiversity values
  • entities seeking to invest in conservation outcomes.

Service type


A licence defines the need to obtain recognition / certification and registration to undertake a certain business activity.

Eligibility requirements

To be eligible for this registration, you must:

  • be the owner of a biobank site which forms part of the Biobanking Scheme
  • have completed specified management actions to improve the biodiversity value of your biobank site
  • provide any other required information or fees to the Agency.
