Useful Information

NLIS Ear Tags for Cattle & Sheep in ACT

  • The National Livestock Identification System (NLIS) is an Australia-wide system that is used to identify and trace livestock. The system works to ensure that Australia's export market access and food safety assurances are of the highest standard. NLIS can also assist in the event of an emergency animal disease outbreak by the rapid tracing of livestock movements and identifying the potential spread pattern of the disease.

  • Livestock movements identified by NLIS-accredited devices or visual tags must be recorded onto a database at each stage of the supply chain process. In most cases the receiver of the stock for each movement must record the information for the movement on the database. 

  • More information about Australian Capital Territory (ACT) NLIS requirements for cattle and sheep can be found on the ACT Government - Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate - Environment website
