LPA accreditation is linked to a property identification code (PIC). To become LPA-accredited, first you need to register your PIC with your state department.
The person responsible for livestock on the PIC needs to ensure that on-farm management systems meet LPA requirements and that all personnel working within the management system associated to the LPA accreditation are aware and trained on these requirements.
An LPA accreditation must be obtained before a livestock producer associated with that property is able to access and use LPA National Vendor Declarations (NVDs).
Producers becoming LPA-accredited for the first time should complete the LPA online learning modules prior to completing their initial accreditation assessment and animal welfare certificate.
It is possible for one PIC to have more than one LPA accreditation linked to it. Individual management systems for livestock on the PIC must have their own LPA accreditation, this includes;
- The PIC Owner (if they manage a livestock operation)
- Separate livestock ownership and ABN’s on the PIC
- Agistment agreements
Where anyone other than the PIC owner requires a LPA accreditation an ISC third party authorisation form must be completed.
