LPA FAQs

LPA Learning is an online tool developed to assist livestock owners to better understand all practices required to meet LPA requirements and prepare for their accreditation assessment.

To access LPA Learning, visit the LPA Learning page , or access the learnings via your LPA Account , where you can also complete your accreditation assessment and Animal Welfare certificate.

Each time livestock are moved off a PIC they must be accompanied by some form of movement documentation. For LPA accredited PICs, this must be an LPA NVD. 

The current LPA NVD is required for all livestock movements, including property to property, through saleyards, direct to processors and to feedlots, and to the live export trade.

The LPA NVD asks the livestock owner a series of questions about the livestock’s history. It also contains a declaration from the livestock owner that all information provided on the LPA NVD is true and correct. There are also sections that must be completed by the person responsible for the livestock while they are being moved and agents where they are involved in a transaction.
