Update on NAIT timeframes and pest control operations

Given the current Covid 19 situation, here is an update on our NAIT and TBFree programmes and what you can expect from us at the moment.

NAIT reporting timeframes have returned to 48 hours : 

  • Time to register as a person in charge of animals (PICA) or PICA delegate is 48 hours. 
  • Declaration of an animal movement must be confirmed within 48 hours. Tag and register requirements still apply. 
  • Animal exit declarations should be confirmed within 48 hours. 
  • If receiving untagged animals, the timeframe to tag the animal is within 48 hours  

At alert level 2 we have been able to continue ground control operations. We are also preparing to get some critical aerial operations underway as soon as possible. With any aerial operation, close contact is required, and staff and our contractors come from multiple regions, so we must consider the logistics and our obligations to ensure our contractors can safely undertake the work. 

We will provide a further update on any changes to our operations and work in the first instance.
