The National Plant Surveillance Reporting Tool (NPSRT) allows state and territory surveillance coordinators across Australia to enter plant pest survey data into an online database.

The surveillance data can be used to address national and international market access issues, identify surveillance activities for particular plant pests, and track surveillance activities across Australia in a standardised and consistent manner.

The database is populated by data collected from government and industry surveillance programs from around Australia. Designated coordinators then enter the data on a quarterly basis.

The database is password protected and only accessible by the relevant administrators, coordinators and reporters.

NPSRT is hosted on the Biosecurity Portal, available here.

All surveillance information is relevant and can be used to support vital market access applications. If your organisation undertakes regular plant pest surveys please contact PHA on 02 6215 7700 or [email protected] for further information.
