All hobbyist and commercial beekeepers in the ACT in Australia are required to register their hives.

Registration is free and can be completed online at the TCCS website

Note this Website also includes the Code of Practice for Beekeeping in Residential Areas of the ACT,  a  good guide to your rights and responsibilities for keeping bees in your backyard.  Want to know how many hives you can keep in your back yard or what you are obliged to do if you find your bees are diseased?  It’s all there.
