FMD Resources

Here are some resources for your reference in the event of FMD entering WA.


Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development webpage that has excellent resources for your reference. It has links to pages explaining how and when to identify your stock and what to do if you move them off your property or bring others on.


  •  - This is the public Brands Register where you can check your registration expiry date and that your details are up to date. Make sure that every property you run stock on is listed. It costs nothing to add or remove a property, using a form accessed from the above webpage.


  • - Livestock Product Assurance (LPA) program – If you intend to supply stock into the food supply or undertake commercial sale of stock (private or public auction), you will need to become accredited with the LPA to access the National Vendor Declaration (NVD) waybill. The LPA program is an industry run, auditable, base level food safety program. The NVD waybill provides information on the status of your animals and meets the regulations for a movement document required every time stock leave your property (even if they are coming home again!).


  • - National Livestock Identification System (NLIS) database – You will need to use this database if you bring cattle, sheep or goats onto to your property. You must record their arrival on your PIC within 48 hours.
