Animal import risk analyses

​​The Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment develops policies that allow for the safe importation of animals, their genetic material and other animal products.

These policies are based on biosecurity risk analyses completed by the department. These analyses consider the biosecurity risk associated with the importation of animals and animal products taking into account Australia’s international obligations.

More information about the risk analysis process can be found at:

We release Biosecurity Advice notices to inform stakeholders about our biosecurity work including import risk analyses. Biosecurity Advice notices are sent to registered stakeholders and are ​availabl​​e on our website.  To become a registered stakeholder, compl​ete the information at register as a stakeholder.
