The rules governing the use of this registration certify 3 main points:
- The beef cattle being certified must meet the following characteristics (detailed definitions contained within the Rules):
- Where both the dam and sire have previously been certified as Native Angus by the Society, certification of the animal will be granted automatically;
- Where either the dam or sire (or both) have not previously been certified as Native Angus by the Society, the application must be accompanied by registration certificates for all ancestors and/or references to publication in official herdbooks as sufficiently necessary so that the Society can establish that all the animal’s ancestors are Native Angus.
Where certification is granted, the Society will issue a certificate designating the owner of the applicant animal as a Certified User.
- It is a condition of use that the certification trade mark shall not be used without indicating that it is a certification trade mark.
