You must be registered as a biosecurity entity if you own or keep a certain number of a livestock, birds or beehives. The threshold number for requiring a biosecurity entity registration can be found on the agency website.
You must be registered even if you don't own the land where you keep your animals. For example, if either:
- you are a lessee
- your animals are agisted on someone else's land
- you keep beehives on someone else's land.
A person, persons or organisation can be registered as a biosecurity entity.
If you hold a property identification code (PIC), you may already be registered as a biosecurity entity.
