Property ID Codes

Grain Producers Australia has recently provided a submission to the Property ID Code review currently underway by the Department of Agriculture. GPA remains concerned that the implementation of a PIC system for the grains industry doesn’t have a clear purpose – there is no evidence of failure that the PIC system would resolve. While a PIC system may be useful in biosecurity incidences, there is a significant amount of work required before GPA can support the implementation.

Grain Producers Australia has recently completed a number of submissions, including:


  • GPA response to the Senate Rural and Regional Affairs and Transport Legislation Committee review – Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Legislation Amendment (Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority Board and Other Improvements) Bill 2019 - 10 October 2019
