NLIS (Sheep and Goats)
The National Livestock Identification System for sheep and goats, known as the NLIS (Sheep and Goats), is Australia's system for the identification and tracking of sheep and goats for food safety, disease control, animal welfare and market access purposes.
Traceability of sheep and goats underpins Victoria's reputation for quality. Implementing mandatory electronic identification of sheep and goats provides customers with increased confidence in the safety and origin of Victorian products, protecting and enhancing market access.
All sheep and goats born in Victoria on or after 1 January 2017 require an electronic NLIS (Sheep) identification tag before being dispatched from their property of birth and from 31 March 2018, property to property movements of electronically tagged sheep and goats in Victoria must be recorded on the NLIS database by the person receiving the livestock.
