Welcome to the PIC Registration and Amendment System

This PIC Registration and Amendment System is targeted at Tasmanian primary producers only.

A Property Identification Code (PIC) is a unique code allocated by the Department of Natural Resources and Environment Tasmania (NRE Tas) to a property.

The PIC is an integral part of the livestock identification and traceback system used to ensure food safety, and is recommended for all properties conducting primary industry enterprises to manage animal or plant disease outbreaks or chemical contamination. Find out more about livestock identification.

Before you proceed to the online form, please read the following information.

Please note that you will need to apply separately for NLIS registration after completing this PIC application online. To complete the NLIS registration form, please download the form here.


  • A single Property Identification Code (PIC) may be allocated to more than one property provided they are operated as part of the one business.
  • The online registration system allows for the inclusion of up to 10 properties. If you have more than 10 properties to register on a PIC, then please contact NRE Tas directly.
  • Owners of a property with one or more head of cattle, sheep, goats or pigs must apply for a PIC
  • Owners of a property conducting any other primary industry enterprise are highly encouraged to apply for a PIC.
  • "An owner" is considered by NRE Tas to be the legal owner, manager, lessee, share farmer, agistee or occupier in control of the property.
