You will need this licence if you intend to provide a cat or dog permanent identification device registry. Permanent identification devices are also known as microchips.
In Queensland, all cats and dogs between 8 and 12 weeks of age must be implanted with a microchip. A microchip is a small rice-grain sized chip that is placed just below the skin on the back of the neck of dogs and cats. This chip is linked to a database that contains the owner's and pet's details, and can be scanned by veterinarians and authorised scanners to reunite lost pets and their owners.
