Microchipping laws for the sale of cats and dogs
In Queensland all cats and dogs between 8 and 12 weeks of age must be implanted with a microchip. Responsibility for microchipping is with the person selling or giving away the animal.
The sale, implanting and tracking of microchips is regulated in Queensland. Only an authorised person may microchip a cat or dog.
This guide provides information about how to apply to become an authorised microchip implanter, the laws around implanting microchips and microchip registry services.
