Plant risk analyses

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​We develop policies that allow the safe importation of plant and plant products.

Risk analyses considers the level of biosecurity risk​ that may be associated with the importation of a good, and identifies appropriate ways to manage the risk.

Risk analyses conducted establish a balance between Australia’s international obligations and the various biosecurity risks that goods may pose to our country.

More information about the risk analysis process can be found on the conducting a biosecurity risk analysis page and in the Biosecurity Import Risk Analysis guidelines.

Risk analysis efficiency trials

As part of strengthening biosecurity surveillance and analysis under the Agricultural Competitiveness White Paper, new initiatives are being trialled to increase the efficiency of the risk analysis process. Initiatives include assessing several market access requests together and assessing groups of pests together. We are also improving communication about risk analyses and engagement with stakeholders.
