Registration for Property Identification Code (PIC)

Registration of properties conducting any primary industry enterprise, incluidng hobby farming, is highly recommended and compulsory for livestock industries.

All properties that run livestock must be registered with the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment and have a Property Identification Code (PIC) allocated to buy, sell and move livestock and before ordering National Livestock Identification System ( NLIS) devices.

A Property Identification Code (PIC) is a unique eight character alphanumeric code allocated by DPIPWE to a property or a number of properties operating as a single enterprise.

A producer can register their properties:

  • by going to the Department's PIC Registration and Amendment website; or
  • by completing the PIC application form below.
  • Application forms are also available by telephoning the DPIPWE's Helpline on 1300 368 550 during business hours to have a form sent by mail or fax.
