When you first register with NAIT as a Person in Charge of Animals (PICA), you will also register the location(s) where you are in charge of NAIT animals.

Each location is assigned a unique NAIT location number.

When you register your location, you will be asked to provide the address, and also select the land parcels where your animals are kept. Registering your location helps identify where your animals are and where they have been.

If your animals are kept at more than one property and they are all within a 10km radius circle you can use the same NAIT location number. If your farms are too far apart, they will need separate NAIT location numbers.

If you move farms

Your NAIT location number cannot move with you. If you move to a new farm you must either:

You will be able to keep the same username and password to access the NAIT location number at your new location.

If you move animals with you, make sure to record any NAIT animal movements from their previous NAIT location number to their new NAIT location number.

As a person in charge of NAIT animals (PICA), you must register all locations they are held.

A registered property where NAIT animals are kept is known as a NAIT location, and can comprise of a single property, or 2 or more properties that fall within or straddle the circumference of a circle with a 10-kilometre radius – the yellow parcels. Each NAIT location is assigned a unique NAIT number as the property identifier. If any of the properties you manage fall outside the 10-kilometre radius, the blue-marked parcel, you must register an additional NAIT number for that property. It is best practice that herds managed separately are registered as individual NAIT locations. This may help reduce the risk of disease spread in case of an outbreak.

A NAIT number is fixed to a NAIT location. In the event that you move to a new location, you'll need to either assign the existing NAIT number for the property to you, as the new PICA for that location, or register a new NAIT number. Remember, you must record NAIT movements for all animals that move between 2 NAIT numbers registered as separate NAIT locations, even if you are the PICA for both. This ensures animals can be traced to their current and past locations for the purpose of trace back.
