Biosecurity

Investigators have a responsibility to ensure that they comply with the Biosecurity Act 2015 when dealing with quarantine status material and with the requirements of all other regulatory organisations prior to and after importation or exportation of materials.

Investigators wishing to import material from overseas should determine whether they require an Import Permit from the Department of Agriculture (formerly AQIS). In addition, some quarantine status material must be stored or dealt with under an Approved Arrangement.
