PLANTPLAN

PLANTPLAN (Australian Emergency Plant Pest Response Plan; issued 8 December 2021) provides nationally consistent guidelines for managing a response to an emergency plant pest incident at national, state/territory and local levels, describing the national procedures, management structures and information flow systems.

Each phase of a response is outlined and the key roles and responsibilities of Industry and government Parties during each of these phases specified. PLANTPLAN documentation includes guidelines, job cards, procedures and forms/templates which provide more detailed and nationally consistent guidance on response procedures, roles/responsibilities in an incident or address national gaps in operational aspects of a response.

PLANTPLAN incorporates best practice in emergency plant pest responses and is updated as required to incorporate new information or address gaps identified by the outcomes of incident debriefs and/or testing in preparedness activities.

PLANTPLAN is endorsed by all signatories to the Emergency Plant Pest Response Deed.
