Queensland & NT NLIS Tags

In Queensland, to order an approved NLIS device or tag you must first obtain an ‘NLIS Device Order Form‘. On 1st October 2019 Biosecurity Queensland emailed all registered entities with expired registrations providing instructions on how to renew registration. If you have an online account, you can renew your registration on the Biosecurity Entity Registration Portal. If you don’t have an online account, to get access call the DAF Customer Service Centre on 13 25 23 or upon request we can contact DAF on your behalf.

Assistance is also available in page Regional Offices

Once you have access to your online account you can generate your own NLIS device order form online and supply to 4Tags with your order for approved NLIS devices. As producers with an online account have already verified their details, the NLIS order form you can access using your online account is pre-authorised. This means you no longer need to seek separate authorisation from a biosecurity officer before submitting your order to 4Tags. This speeds up the NLIS tag ordering process for Qld producers.

Up to date biosecurity entity registration information is a critical part of Queensland’s robust biosecurity system. Biosecurity entity registration allows DAF to better prepare for biosecurity emergencies, respond to biosecurity risks and trace the origin and spread of a pest or disease. This makes it easier to, for example, contact cattle producers if there’s a biosecurity event that could affect their industry.

Ordering NLIS Devices in the Northern Territory

In the Northern Territory, stock owners are responsible for sourcing devices directly from manufacturers and can do so using 4tags.com. The Northern Territory Department of Primary Industry & Fisheries (DPIF) does not play any part in the ordering or supply of RFIDs.
