Accredited certifiers for cattle tick

Accredited certifiers are trained and authorised by legislation to certify the cattle tick status of livestock. They may be used when moving livestock between cattle tick zones or verifying the effectiveness of an eradication program in the free zone.

Accredited certifiers can issue biosecurity certificates and may inspect and/or treat livestock in order to verify a tick free status. Inspection and treatments may be performed on property or at a clearing facility. On property inspection and treatments will allow livestock to be certified at their place of origin and moved directly to their destination.

The biosecurity manual (PDF, 1.3MB) outlines the procedures to be followed by an accredited certifier when certifying the cattle tick status of livestock. Biosecurity certificates will only be issued if the accredited certifier is satisfied that the 'risk minimisation requirements' outlined in the manual have been met and that the livestock are tick free.

Becoming an accredited certifier

To become an accredited certifier you will need to complete training and have the necessary expertise and experience to be appointed. Accredited certifiers will be granted accreditation by the Chief Executive of the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries, and undergo annual audits. There are fees associated with becoming an accredited certifier. Accreditation could be cancelled at any time if the service you provide is deemed to not meet the necessary requirements.
