Registration of a Property Identification Code (PIC) - Tasmania


If you own a property that runs livestock, including sheep, cattle, goats and pigs, your property must be registered with the Agency. Once registered you will be allocated a permanent property identification code (PIC). A PIC is an eight letter code which defines your property spatially and forms the basis of Australia's food safety and traceability programs.

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 proximity that are worked as a single property.

Once allocated your PIC will be be recorded on:

  • animal movement documents
  • vendor declarations
  • national livestock identification scheme (NLIS) database
  • NLIS tags
  • animal health statements.

Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
