Biosecurity Emergency Management – Response Logistics Guide

Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment, June 2020

This Guide has been developed by the National Biosecurity Response Team (NBRT) Advisory Group, established under the National Biosecurity Emergency Preparedness Expert Group (Expert Group).

The Expert Group endorsed this Guide for national issue on 27 February 2020.

This Guide describes contemporary response logistics principles, systems and processes so Logistics Managers and their teams can contribute effectively to any Australian biosecurity response by confidently, safely and efficiently managing response facilities and services with simple, compliant systems and tools.

While every jurisdiction applies their own policies, processes and systems to biosecurity responses, this Guide provides a common benchmark to promote consistency, whilst also supporting flexible and scalable application to jurisdictional arrangements.

This Guide assumes a basic level of knowledge exists with its users – either in departmental processes that are relevant to response logistics, incident management and/or biosecurity responses.

This Guide is also designed for use as a training resource. It contextualises incident management arrangements specifically for personnel in the Logistics section; and it can be used by anyone seeking an understanding of biosecurity response logistics.
