Seeking views on draft determinations for imported goods and reportable biosecurity incidents

April 26, 2016

More draft delegated legislation is available for public comment.

Public consultation is now open for the following draft determinations and will close on 17 May 2016:

  • Biosecurity (Prohibited and Conditionally Non-prohibited Goods) Determination 2016
  • Biosecurity (Reportable Biosecurity Incidents) Determination 2016

The draft goods determination outlines the items that cannot be imported into Australia under any circumstances, such as the live foot and mouth disease virus. It also details those goods that are allowed to be imported if the biosecurity risk they pose is reduced to low but not necessarily zero.

The draft reportable biosecurity incidents determination describes the types of events that may pose a biosecurity risk, the information that must be included in a report, and how a report must be made.
