FAQs for producers

Before using the app, producers are advised to check in with their transporter and receiver, including saleyards and agents, to ensure they are ready to receive digital consignments.

For those receivers who still require paper forms, eNVDs can be printed or emailed and sent with your livestock.

The eNVD web-based system and eNVD app are cross-compatible and work similarly to a banking app. Any consignment created in the mobile app will be available in the web application on your desktop or laptop once your mobile is connected to the internet. A consignment created on your desktop will also appear through the mobile app. 

In this case, you will need to complete the transporter section with your details and sign the transporter declaration before submitting your consignment. Once you arrive at your destination, the receiver can access the submitted consignment via their NLIS account, or receive the transfer using the QR code. 

Yes, you can be logged into the eNVD app on multiple phones using the same LPA account. Please note that two people sharing the same account on different phones may overwrite data if updating a consignment at the same time. In these instances, a notification will be provided within the app, outlining the synchronisation conflict and which consignment has been updated. 

No – every consignment must have an NVD or EU NVD at the base level. Other forms, such as Health Declarations, MSA or NFAS forms are available, depending on individual accreditations, as extra programs to the base NVD consignment. 

Yes, the hours off feed and water is listed as a question within the eNVD app.

When launching the app, the NLIS PIC register must be downloaded to your phone to help you find the PICs (Property Identification Codes) associated with the destination your livestock are moving to.

The app will also search the database for any consignments that you may have created on the eNVD website or any consignments that may have been sent to you and download these to your device. This might take a minute, but it will not take up a large amount of space on your phone. 

We are aware that some users are experiencing delays, resulting in the syncing process taking longer than expected on some devices. We are investigating methods for speeding up this process.

If you are experiencing this issue, please ensure you have the latest version of the app on your device.  The syncing will be a little slow the first time you open and use the app. We recommend waiting a few minutes for this to complete.

If uninstalling and reinstalling the app from the App store does not resolve your issues, you can contact us to seek troubleshooting support on 1800 683 111 or via email at eNVD@integritysystems.com.au.

This will depend on the receiver and their requirements when taking delivery of stock.

A truck arriving before the eNVD has been sent to the receiver is essentially the same as a truck arriving without any paperwork and the receiver may not take possession of the stock until all documentation is provided.

As a producer/supplier, it is your responsibility to ensure the receiver is able to receive eNVDs and that your consignment is submitted prior to the livestock arriving at their destination. If you will be offline while the stock are in transit, the eNVD can be submitted ahead of time (up to 28 days in advance of the movement date) and updated once the exact headcount details are known. 

Alternatively, you can print a hard copy of the consignment to supply to the transporter.

ISC is working with the supply chain to make sure everyone is ready to use the app, however, you should confirm with your receiver that you will be using the eNVD app before your livestock are loaded. If the transporter has mobile service, they have the following options: 

  1. The transporter can download the app and register a myMLA account to allow the supplier to address the eNVD to them. The transporter can then access and update that consignment on their phone prior to leaving the collection point.
  2. The transporter could download the app and log into it in guest mode. In this case, the transporter would be able to fill in the transporter section on the suppliers’ device and then use the QR feature to transfer a completed copy of the declaration on the transporters’ device. 
  3. If the transporter doesn't have the app and doesn't have service at the collection point, eNVDs created in the app can be printed and provided to the transporter to complete by hand.  

At this stage, the app does not have the ability to add scanned documents or photos to a consignment.

You can add a reference to any paperwork which may accompany the livestock using the document type and serial number, and need to ensure you provide hard copy paperwork to the transporter to pass along to the receiver.

ISC will be looking to add this feature in future updates. 

Changes to a consignment are possible within 48 hours of submission to the description of livestock (including the headcount), movement date and time and transporter details. Other details are unable to be changed and a new eNVD will need to be created if these are incorrect when the consignment is submitted. Any updates to a consignment will be automatically visible to anyone associated with a consignment (either via PIC or email ID) when they come online in the app or log into the eNVD website.

Yes, however you need to make sure that the transporters details are captured in the app and the consignment has been submitted prior to creating the PDF to ensure that the transporter has a completed declaration with them while in transit. Only submitted consignments can be downloaded and emailed as a PDF, draft consignments cannot be shared.

The following forms are available using the eNVD:

  • Livestock Production Assurance National Vendor Declaration (LPA NVD) for cattle, EU cattle, sheep and lamb, goats and bobby calves
  • Meat Standards Australia (MSA) declaration
  • National health declaration (cattle, sheep and goat)
  • National Feedlot Accreditation Scheme (EU, delivery docket, form B).

Yes, however only the destination PIC is a mandatory field and the validation on the app will stop you from progressing if the PIC field is left empty. You can use the PIC search function in the app, including state and PIC type filters, to find out the PIC of your receiver.

The producer can email PDF copies of the consignment to transporter and receivers provided there is coverage at the yards and the transporter has completed part B of the consignment (including signature) on the producer’s device prior to generating the PDF. This is to ensure that the transporter has a completed declaration with them while in transit.

Alternatively, the producer can fall back to the paper process by completing the eNVD on their device, printing copies of the eNVD from a computer and passing the paperwork to the transporter to complete by hand and begin transporting the stock.

FAQs for transporters

If a transfer needs to take place while the producer and transporter are both offline, QR codes will need to be scanned. This will be done through the eNVD app. More detail is available in the flyer. 

Due to the large amount of information to be shared, multiple QR codes are generated by the app. As the QR codes are being scanned, they rotate through, enabling multiple codes to be scanned. It is important to ensure all QR codes are scanned to receive all eNVD information. 

Police and transport inspectors who have the eNVD app installed can sign in as a "guest" and scan the QR codes to view the consignment details. Alternatively transporters can show the officer or inspector the consignment details on their own device.

Scenario 1 – Seller and Transporter are the same

In this case, you will need to complete the transporter section with your details and sign the transporter declaration before submitting your consignment. Once you arrive at your destination, the receiver can access the submitted consignment via their NLIS account, or receive the transfer using the QR code. 

Scenario 2 – Transporter and Receiver are the same

Use your Transporter account on the eNVD app to receive the eNVD consignment. You will also be able to view the consignment on the eNVD app under your receiver card (provided you have linked your NLIS account under your myMLA linked accounts). Alternatively, you can also access your eNVDs via your NLIS account.

A linked myMLA account is not a requirement for transporters to use the app as they can access eNVDs in guest mode and scan the QR code provided by their supplier.

If a transporter wants to receive consignments ahead of time they will need to have an account that is linked to myMLA.

FAQs for saleyards

No. The eNVD is a document that must be completed and signed by the person responsible for the husbandry of the livestock. Only a person with an LPA account and LPA accreditation can create and submit an eNVD. 

Someone buying stock from a saleyard will not be able to view the NVD for those animals via the eNVD app or website, however, the eNVD can be shared as a PDF file or printed as a hard copy. This feature will be added to future updates of the app. Post-sale summaries and any other data generated by saleyard software will continue to be provided outside of the eNVD system. 

The process of taking possession of livestock will vary from location to location. ISC is working with industry to build individual adoption plans for businesses to transition from paper to paperless consignments. If you are unsure of the requirements at your destination, please have a conversation with the recipient prior to moving the livestock to ensure no confusion when the stock arrives.
