In February 2019, OSPRI notified all registered PICAs (persons in charge of animals) nationwide that they must update their user and location information in the NAIT online system. This is a mandatory requirement and is known as “NAIT re-registration”. It only needs to be done once.

PICAs who choose not to re-register their NAIT accounts may be subject to a $400 fine or prosecution.

Why re-register?

The ability to trace movements of animals to the locations where they have been throughout their lifetime is vital. To do this effectively we need up to date information about the people responsible for NAIT animals and the locations of those animals. NAIT introduced a new way of mapping farm locations by selecting land parcels that is a more accurate way of identifying where animals are kept and have been.

To re-register, you will need:

  • The Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) parcels that make up your NAIT location
  • The number of cattle and/or deer at the location
  • Details about the herd type(s) and other stock at the location

How to re-register

  1. 1 Log into NAIT.
  2. 2 Select 'My details'.
  3. 3 Select 'Edit my details'.
