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 Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment (DPIPWE) to a property.

The PIC is an integral part of the livestock identification and traceback system used to ensure food safety and to manage disease outbreaks or chemical contamination. Find out more about livestock identification.

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


  • Owners of a property with one or more head of cattle, sheep, goats or pigs must apply for a PIC
  • Owners of a property with other livestock that are not listed above may also apply for a PIC.
  • Owners of a property used for cropping are also encouraged to apply for a PIC.
  • "An owner" is considered by DPIPWE to be the legal owner, manager, lessee, share farmer, agistee or occupier in control of the property.
  • Before completing the form, please read the privacy statement and certify that this has been read.
  • Once your completed form has been submitted, your PIC application will be assessed by DPIPWE. You may be contacted by DPIPWE if any further information is required.
  • DPIPWE will contact you by email and post with confirmation of your PIC and your password. Please allow 5 working days for the registration to be processed.
  • You will only need to use your password if you wish to amend your PIC details.
  • A single Property Identification Code (PIC) may be allocated to more than one property provided they are operated as part of the one business.
