Introduction to the Biosecurity Act Interactive Learning tool

​​To support implementation of the Biosecurity Act 2015 we have released an interactive learning tool to help clients and stakeholders gain a deeper understanding of the legislation and the changes for individuals and businesses.

The Introduction to the Biosecurity Act Interactive Learning tool outlines the legislative framework for managing Australia’s Biosecurity System from 16 June 2016, including an overview of key chapters in the Biosecurity Act and the interaction of supporting delegated legislation.

The tool:

  • introduces new terminology
  • outlines key roles and powers
  • explains the operational jurisdiction of the Act, including where the legislation applies and who will be impacted
  • provides case studies and scenario examples to help you understand how the Act may apply in real-life situations.
