Please note: This content may be out of date and is currently under review.

In Western Australia, all owners of livestock and bees are legally required to register with the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) Brands Office. This includes beekeepers.

There are now two avenues to register: via the new online Brands Portal or with the existing paper-based applications. The Brands Portal is a secure website that allows Beekeepers, Livestock owners and supply chain location operators to manage their registrations online. It is the preferred option for submitting registrations.

If you are unable or prefer not to use the Brands Portal, you can download and send in the completed paper forms via email or post. 

For further information on registration using the Brands Portal or paper forms, visit the Registering as an owner of livestock or as a beekeeper webpage.
