Changes to the laws that govern agents in stock agency, real estate and the property industry in NSW commence on 23rd March 2020.
Agents who hold a NSW licence or certificate of registration need to be aware of the changes, how the changes will affect them and their business before the new laws start.
This also applies to those agents who reside outside NSW but hold a NSW licence or certificate. CLICK HERE for further information.
As a reminder, a new tool that assists livestock producers to manage the biosecurity or food safety risks that can come with buying and selling animals will be live in the National Livestock Identification System (NLIS) database from Monday 13 January 2020.
The Early Warning (EW) status of a Property Identification Code (PIC) will be visible to all supply chain participants, including producers, agents and saleyards using the NLIS database.
The EW status identifies whether the vendor’s PIC has an animal registered to it that may be considered a risk to the buyer (i.e. chemical residue, food safety, disease). It does not identify what the individual animal risk is or which specific animal it is assigned to.
The EW status has been visible within the NLIS database to processors and feedlots for some time. Demand from across the value chain for full transparency in the sale process now means all buyers will be able to see the status and better manage their own business risk.
Agents are encouraged to know the PIC status of consignments and to share this information with their buyers, prior to the sale.

STOCKINSURE has covered its members for buyer default now for many many years.
They have grown far beyond just butcher insurance.
ALPA Members can now get credit insurance cover under the “Stockinsure” scheme extending now to live exporters. Who wouldn't want that?
This has been in a response to demand from current ALPA Stockinsure members and has involved some interesting negotiations to get all three insurers on board.
It does not involve any increase in the levy rate payable by members.
The cover on live exporters now comes in addition to the existing cover on abattoirs, butchers, food processors and feedlotters.
This cover certainly helps you sleep at night knowing you are protected.
Call STOCKINSURE on 02 9252 7600.
