National Biosecurity Forum

National Biosecurity Forum - overview

The National Biosecurity Forum brings together key stakeholders to:

We host the forum each year, on behalf of the National Biosecurity Committee (NBC).

The Australian Biosecurity Awards are also presented at the forum.

To learn more, contact the Biosecurity Roundtable Secretariat.

Background

The National Biosecurity Forum began as a Biosecurity Roundtable in 2008. The event was a chance for stakeholders to engage with government each year.

The forum was very valuable for stakeholders. They raised interest in attending these types of events more often. In 2016, the NBC introduced a series of roundtables in each state and territory. These take place throughout the year. The roundtables conclude with the National Biosecurity Forum.

Since 2019, state and territory governments have been responsible for delivering their roundtables. We coordinate and deliver the National Biosecurity Forum.
