Australia's Top 40 National Priority Plant Pests (Sep 2016)
Australian Government. Department of Agriculture and Water Resources.
​Crippled plant industries, trade suspensions and a devastated environment—Australia's Top 40 National Priority Plant Pests have damaging potential, from vine-attacking bacteria to a giant snail. The Top 40 pests were recently endorsed by Plant Health Committee, Australia's top committee for plant biosecurity. They were identified through a national expert elicitation process, which considered the economic, social and environment threats the pests posed to Australia. More information on Australia's Top 40 National Priority Plant Pests is available here.

Review of the Australian Pest Animal Strategy and the Australian Weeds Strategy (Sep 2016)
Australian Government. Department of Agriculture and Water Resources.
The Department of Agriculture and Water Resources is undertaking public consultation on the revised Australian Pest Animal Strategy and revised Australian Weeds Strategy 2017 to 2027. The strategies provide a national framework for addressing pest animals and weeds, while maintaining the profitability and sustainability of Australia’s primary industries. An independent review of the strategies in 2012 recommended that the strategies be revised to reflect changes in pest animal management and weed management in Australia. As the strategies are almost 10 years old, they need to be brought into line with updated biosecurity policies, including the Intergovernmental Agreement on Biosecurity (IGAB).

Biosecurity Act 2015 (Jun 2016)
Australian Government. Department of Agriculture and Water Resources.
Important changes to Australia's Biosecurity System came into effect on 16 June 2016 with commencement of the Biosecurity Act 2015. The Biosecurity Act replaced the Quarantine Act 1908 and is designed to be flexible and responsive to changes in technology and future challenges. The Biosecurity Act sets up new requirements and regulatory powers that will affect how the department manages the biosecurity risks associated with goods, people and conveyances entering Australia.
