Property identification codes (PICs)

A Property Identification Code (PIC) is a unique eight-character number assigned to a property where livestock are either held or sold. A PIC defines the property spatially, forms the basis of Australia’s food safety and traceability programs, and assists in the identification of properties that may be potentially affected during an animal disease emergency.

For further information and to apply for, amend or cancel a PIC, please visit the Property Identification Code (PIC) Application page.

There is no fee associated with applying for a PIC in ACT.
