Property identification code (PIC) - Queensland


You will need a property identification code (PIC) for the land that you keep your animals. A PIC is allocated once you register as a biosecurity entity. If you don't own the property on which your animals are kept, you still need to register as a biosecurity entity and obtain a PIC.

Queensland livestock owners need PICs to:

  • buy National Livestock Identification System (NLIS) devices
  • access other national systems such as national vendor declarations or waybills
  • report movements to the NLIS database.
