Tag manufacturers' responsibilities are set out in the device standards for cattle and deer.

First, you'll need to reserve the NAIT visual Identifier (visual ID) for each NAIT RFID tag. This avoids duplication of visual IDs across all accredited tag manufacturers. You can then perform a tag upload in the NAIT system.

You will not be able to upload any NAIT visual IDs that you have not first reserved for your tag manufacturing company.

To reserve a tag visual ID, you'll need to know:

  • the NAIT visual tag number
  • the industry code (if applicable)
  • the NAIT number
  • your organisation name
  • whether the tag is a replacement.

To upload a tag, you'll need to know:

  • the issue date
  • The unique RFID number
  • the NAIT visual tag ID
  • whether the tag is a duplicate
  • the tag category (cattle or deer)
  • the industry code (if applicable)
  • the NAIT number
  • the manufacturer reference number
  • the product code for your company (A)
  • the product code for your company (B)
  • the production type of the tag.

Tag reservations and uploads can be done by uploading a CSV file into NAIT, or by using external software to interface with NAIT.
