NLIS: Guidelines for managing an agent code


This publication provides guidelines to stock and station agents on how to comply with the requirements of the National Livestock Identification System (NLIS) whenever cattle, sheep and goats are sold by public auction in NSW and are transferred to an agent code. These requirements are prescribed under the Stock Diseases Regulation 2009.

In summary:

* agent codes may be used to temporarily assign livestock if agents buy stock on behalf of a number of clients and do not know the PIC of the properties the stock will be sent to;
* livestock must be transferred off an agent code within 7 days.
