The Meat Industry Act 12 of 1981 requires that all livestock producers must be registered with the MBN and these producers numbers must be renewed (reregistered) every 5 years. Currently, application forms are available at strategic places such as all Directorate of Agriculture Production, Extension and Engineering Services (DAPEES) and Directorate of Veterinary Services (DVS) offices nationwide, regional MBN offices (Ongwediva, Rundu and Katima Mulilo) and the MBN website (Application form)

However of late the MBN introduced a free of charge online registration function for all new registrations as well as for renewals. The link can be found on the MBN website under the Meat Board Portal. For all new registrations and first time visitors one has to register to access the online portal by simply clicking on the interactive here.

For any enquiries kindly contact Ms Lallie Umati Kandari 061-275858 or Mr Desmond Cloete 061-275877.
