Registrable Biosecurity Entity (RBE)

Do you keep one or more cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, bison, buffalo, deer or animals from the Camelidae (e.g. alpacas, llamas) or Equidae family (e.g. horses, ponies, donkeys, mules, zebras)? Or perhaps you have 100 or more designated birds, or one or more bee hives? If so, the Act will require you to be registered as a registrable biosecurity entity (RBE) for traceability purposes in case of a disease outbreak or possible contamination. 

If you currently hold a property identification code (PIC) you will be automatically registered as an RBE from 1 July 2016 and will retain your association with your PIC. Beekeepers will continue to have a hive identification number. 

Under the Act, you will need to renew your registration every three years as it will not automatically be renewed. If you currently hold a PIC or are a registered beekeeper, Biosecurity Queensland will contact you about renewing your registration before your current registration is due to expire.

More information on the RBE can be found here. To ensure your current details are up to date before you become an RBE, please call 13 25 23 or email DAF via their website.
