On 1 June 2015 the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources and the National Biosecurity Committee (NBC) published a discussion paper, Modernising Australia’s approach to managing established pests and diseases of national significance. The paper outlined a proposed new framework for managing established pests and diseases of national significance.
The department received 32 submissions, from landholders, non-government organisations and industry and community groups.
The key points and themes raised in the submissions were considered by the NBC in finalising the new framework for managing established pests and diseases of national significance.
