Registration of a Property Identification Code (PIC) - Tasmania

Description

If you own a property that runs livestock, including sheep, cattle, goats and pigs, you must obtain a property identification code (PIC) by applying and registering the property with the Agency. A PIC is an eight letter code which identifies your property spatially and forms the basis of Australia's animal disease response, food safety and traceability programs.

You will need register the person responsible for the management of animals who will be the primary contact for the PIC. Once registered you will be allocated a permanent property identification code (PIC).

If you have more than one property, you can apply to have these amalgamated under one PIC. A 'property' is defined as one or more parcels of land in close proximity that are worked as a single property.

Once allocated your PIC you will need to register for the following (depending on type of stock and their movement):

  • National Vendor Declarations (NVD)
  • National Livestock Identification System (NILS) database
  • Authorisation to use and purchase NILS tags.

Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
