Working together to protect our future from exotic pests and diseases

Farmers consistently tell us that biosecurity risks are among the biggest risks we face as an industry.
Wednesday, 4 October 2017

We’re now seeking your support for us to join other primary sector groups in signing the Government Industry Agreement for Biosecurity Readiness and Response Deed (GIA).

We think that the benefits of signing the GIA, with increased certainty and control over our own biosecurity destiny justifies potential costs. 

We would be better-prepared, have a pre-agreed set of minimum readiness and response commitments between industry and government, and agreed limits on our industry’s potential cost-share for readiness and response activities.

Thank you for your interest in GIA. The period for making submissions has now closed.
