There is a link to reset a password on the login page. To reset a password, enter your username and email address. If you cannot remember your username — email info@ospri.co.nz — provide your full name and our contact centre will confirm your username.

We recommend you leave it for 10 minutes and then try again using the password reset function. If you are still unable to get access, email info@ospri.co.nz.

You can update your details by clicking the “My Details” button on the homepage. You can also change the name/address/phone number details when creating an ASD. If you are unable to update personal details, email our contact centre at info@ospri.co.nz.

These are questions required by the processor. If you are unsure what to answer, check with your livestock representative.

It is a legal requirement for a transporter to carry a copy of the ASD with them, however, it can be held electronically as agreed with MPI and the NZ Police. For this reason, a copy of the eASD is emailed to the transport company once it is submitted.

If you haven’t received an email first, check your junk email folder. If it is not there, email our contact centre on info@ospri.co.nz.

You must enter your 7-digit TBfree herd number for the herd the animals are moving from. This field is mandatory in eASD as it auto-populates their TB status, whereas on the paper form it is optional. You may be used to writing only your dairy participant codes (e.g. QXYF) or herd codes (e.g. 6/0167) on the paper version of this form, so you may not know what your TBfree number is. If this is the case, email our contact centre on info@ospri.co.nz.

Herds without breeding animals have a status of CM this means ‘clear monitored’. They are monitored for TB at the works rather than tested on farm. For these herds, the last TB test date is the date of their last ‘Eligible Animal Questionnaire’ (EAQ). You can find this out by getting in touch with our contact centre.

Not all meat processors have joined the programme.

We are advised by each meat processor which transporters should be listed against them. If a transporter you commonly use is not listed, you can select “other” in the list and type in their name and email address.

Unfortunately, eASD does not currently support multiple user access to one account. At present there are two ways to use the app in this situation:

1. One account is registered, and multiple people have the log in for it. They can change the sender details each time they fill in a form; or

2. Each person has their own account, but they list the stock owner as the farm owner/company name when creating an eASD. Once submitted, eASDs can be downloaded and emailed to the farm owner to keep a record of eASDs sent.
