Transported Stock Statement (TSS) Application

What is a TSS?

The Transported Stock Statement (TSS) system was introduced in 1990 partly to assist the Police service to trace stolen stock. As a result of an increase in the incidence of stock theft, the need has now arisen to heighten community awareness of the TSS scheme.

You must use a TSS whenever cattle, sheep, goats or horses are to be transported by a vehicle, whether it be by road, rail or water within NSW.

When is a TSS not required?

  • when stock are transported into New South Wales from another state or from the Australian Capital Territory, and transported within New South Wales for up to 30 kilometres before returning to that other state or territory as part of an unbroken journey;
  • when stock are transported across or along a road from one part of a holding to another part that would be contiguous with the first-mentioned part but for being separated by the road;
  • when stock are transported to or from a place for treatment by a veterinary surgeon;
  • when horses are being transported to or from any agricultural show, exhibition, gymkhana, pony club meeting or similar function;
  • when racehorses, harness racing horses or working horses are being transported from one place to another;
  • when stock are transported in any other circumstances prescribed by the regulations;
  • when stock are transported under the provisions of a stock permit issued under Section 101 of the Rural Lands Protection Act 1998, or an order or permit issued under the Stock Diseases Act 1923.
