A big change for importers


Important changes to Australia’s biosecurity system come into effect on 16 June 2016 with commencement of the Biosecurity Act 2015.

The Biosecurity Act 2015 (Biosecurity Act) replaces the Quarantine Act 1908, allowing for significant modernisation of the biosecurity system. The Biosecurity Act introduces new requirements that will affect how the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources manages the biosecurity risks of goods, people and conveyances entering Australia.

The Department of Agriculture and Water Resources are aiming to make compliance with the new laws easy for you and your business.

Head over to their website and ensure that you are aware of the upcoming changes.
