National Biosecurity Committee
We manage a national, strategic approach to biosecurity in Australia. This includes the effect of pests and diseases on our agriculture, environment, and on community wellbeing.
To support our goals, we:
- - promote a coordinated and consistent approach to biosecurity between Australian governments
- - ensure we target risks while still supporting trade and the movement of goods, animals and vessels around Australia
- - provide advice to the Agriculture Senior Officials Committee
Good biosecurity is a huge job. We don’t do this work alone.
The National Biosecurity Committee is currently developing a national biosecurity strategy. Find out more.
